A comprehensive campaign is being run by the electricity workers, engineers and officers against the privatization of the electricity industry in Maharashtra, under which the electricity workers of Maharashtra will go on strike for 72 hours from January 4, 2023. In view of this, the management has ordered the electricians and engineers of Madhya Pradesh to be on duty in Maharashtra.
Madhya Pradesh Vidyut Mandal Patropadhi Engineer Sangh has written a letter to the management to cancel this duty and has given its full support to the electricity employees of Maharashtra.

It is requested that there is a shortage of assistant engineers and staff in the power plants of the state and they are not technically proficient in performing duties on other plants and any kind of untoward accident may occur. Therefore, please cancel the duty of the said assistant engineers immediately, because during the movement, untoward incidents may also happen with the engineers.
