State president of JEs council RK Choudhary said that the management had failed to settle the demands of JEs even after a meeting with the management this Monday. Protestors stated that the management was non-committal even on the release of arrears on account of pay revision, which was a cause of unrest.

The protestors said that the management was not serious on revising the pay structure of its Junior Engineers & restoration of Pay Parity of JEs with divisional superintendent.

The council leadership also criticized the PSTCL for making separate recruitments in violation of tripartite agreement.

It just happens that we live opposite a mall. When it was under construction, the magnitude of it would amaze me, having me wonder what it would have in store for my small city. One day, I decided to cross the road, finally, and step inside those fancy glass doors, on the glazed flooring. Writes Pushpa Peshawaria.
