There are nearly 500 daily wagers awaiting their regularization since 1997 pertaining to the District and unless creation of the posts is not carried out, it won’t be possible to regularize such a huge backlog.
The PEECC members vehemently asked the employees to push for revenue collection on war footing basis so that Government also is forced to rethink on privatization move and turnaround the power distribution sector.
PEECC appeals Government to resolve the long pending issues of the employees who have sacrificed their lives in line of duty and settle their claims of compensation and SRO-43 on priority.
