Patiala, December 4
Power sector employees and engineers under the banner of the National Coordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers (NCCOEEE) have finalised an action plan in all states to oppose the Electricity Amendment Bill 2021.
The employees from Punjab and other states will hold day-long massive demonstrations on December 8 at all the power utility headquarters, projects, and work sites, said VK Gupta, a spokesperson of the All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF).
The meeting of the NCCOEEE was held on December 3 and it further decided to hold a central-level protest on December 15 in New Delhi. Further, in case the government attempts to place the Bill in either house of the Parliament, NCCOEEE constituents will resort to spontaneous work boycotts and start day-long demonstrations at all electricity work centres.
The Bill will facilitate the death knell to the power distribution companies and will facilitate the private players to make open loot by making use of the infrastructure of electricity distribution utility without any investment, Gupta added.
