ANJEA to launch protest from Sep 12

Accusing the state government of failing to take any positive steps to address their grievances till date, the All Nagaland Junior Engineers’ Association (ANJEA)—comprising of NPWD, PHE and Power departments—has decided to launch phase-I protest by wearing black badges for six days starting September 12, 2022.
In a press release, ANJEA president Er. L. Hekuto and General Secretary Er. Noswedeno Khatso cautioned that the members would continue with phase-II in the form of casual/earned leave if the association did not receive any positive outcome.
ANJEA stated that a representation was submitted to the government for the career progression of the junior engineers and subsequently submitted a reminder.
According to ANJEA, the state government has formulated the Nagaland Engineering Service Rules in such a way that the Group-B cadre of engineers were deprived of timely promotion to the post of SDO and never get the opportunity for further promotion (i.e. EE and above) as JEs get promotion only on the verge of retirement. It stated that so many members have retired without a single promotion and more members were in line due to stagnation.
