BHUBANESWAR: The Zonal Executive Committee (ZEC) of East Coast Railway Engineers’ Association (ECoREA) has expressed its displeasure over the delay in fulfilment of demands by the Railway Board.
The Committee has unanimously decided to meet Railways Minister Mukul Roy in this regard. The ZEC meeting was held at Vizianagaram on Sunday where office-bearers of zonal headquarters, Mancheswar Workshop and all three divisions __ Khurda Road, Sambalpur and Waltair __ attended. The body also expressed its gratitude to Indra Ghosh, GM, ECoR, for backing SK Panda, a senior section engineer of Puri. Panda had been attacked by a mob during demolition of unauthorised construction on railway land last month in connection with the proposed world-class station in Puri. It was also decided to bring to the notice of the GM the harassment railway engineers are subjected to for minor faults. The ZEC also hailed Ghosh’s decision for hearing the grievances of railway employees every Monday. General secretary of ECoREA Bobin Mohanty conducted the meeting.
