Press release of the organizations involved in the strike
26 January 2023, Indore
After mediation by Indore MP and MLA, the strike ongoing for 5 consecutive days has been postponed
In the ongoing work boycott under the leadership of Technical Employees Association, Electricity Officer Employees Welfare Association, Outsourced Electricity Employees Association, Outsourced Employees Association and other organizations, Hon’ble MP Shankar Lalwani ji joined us at the Indore protest site on 25 January. He assured us with full sympathy that serious action will be taken within a time limit by holding a meeting through his mediation with Hon’ble Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Principal Secretary Energy.
Considering the deteriorating electricity system in the state and the effect on public welfare as well as the expectation of starting a dialogue with the government, the core committee of the andolan has decided to postpone the strike till 2 February. If a proper decision is not taken regarding the 3-point legitimate demands of the electricity workers by holding a meeting within a fixed time limit and establishing a dialogue with the committee sent by the Technical Employees Union through the Member of Parliament, then the andolan will be resumed from 2 February.
Friends, be patient, the movement will not be ended until our demands are accepted; continue to maintain faith and unbreakable unity.
