Employees of the state electricity board will hold a dharna in support of their demands in front of the state Secretariat on September 4, 2012. It will be followed by a series of rallies and dharnas across the state on September 10, 2012.

Kuldeep Singh Kharwara, president of the State Electricity Board Employees’ Union, said the union had also sought the support of power consumers as they would be the worst-hit in case the board was liquidated due to the “ruinous policies” of the government.
