Pensioners blame power board officers for losses

Hamipur, July 19

The Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Limited Pensioners Union has blamed officers for the loss to the board. Dev Raj Verma, president of the union, said here today that the union had collected evidence against some of them. The board was generating high revenue but due to a few corrupt people, it landed in financial crunch.

The union demanded the restoration of the electricity allowance and 20-per cent reservation in jobs for the families of the board employees. He said the LTC should be provided to the pensioners and medical allowance be raised to Rs 1,000. — OC
