UP Engineers Association launches agitation against irregularities in transfer of officers
Engineers working in various engineering departments/corporations/authorities/public enterprises in all districts of UP protested by tying black armbands while on duty
The Uttar Pradesh Engineers Association (UPEA) launched a statewide agitation on Tuesday to protest against the suspension of senior engineers from the Public Works Department (PWD) for irregularities in the transfer of officers.
Engineers working in various engineering departments/corporations/authorities/public enterprises in all districts protested by tying black armbands during the service.
UPEA President Surjit Singh Niranjan and General Secretary Ashish Yadav said in a press release that the association would step up its agitation if their demands were not met.
UPEA’s demands include revoking the suspension of Chief Engineer (Development) and Head of Department of Public Works Department of UP Manoj Kumar Gupta, Chief Engineer (Project and Planning) Rakesh Kumar Saxena and Senior Staff Officer Shailendra Kumar Yadav. A fair investigation must be carried out into irregularities in transfers, a retired senior engineer must be included in the investigation committee.
The establishment of engineering departments should be under the control of the head of department or the chief engineer. Ongoing investigations against engineers working in various engineering departments need to be settled within the stipulated time.
The chief engineer or principal engineer must be posted at the rank of principal secretary of the engineering department or society, as is the case in 13 states. Vacant senior positions are expected to be filled through promotions and pending engineer services should be completed soon, they said.
UPEA has sent a letter to CM Yogi Adityanath stating that it has come to the association’s knowledge that the list sent by the department relating to the transfer to the government has not been published. The transfer list was modified at the top level before being issued at the government level. It is against the rules to blame senior engineers for irregularities. There is resentment among engineers over the action against senior engineers, UPEA officials said.
