Lakhs of power sector workers protest against Electricity Amendment Bill 2020: AIPEF

Lakhs of power sector employees and engineers are protesting against the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020 and the government’s move to privatise power distribution companies in union territories, according to a statement by AIPEF. Last month, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had announced the government’s plan to privatise power distribution utilities in union territories. The power ministry also circulated a draft Electricity Amendment Bill 2020 on April 17, 2020.

“Lakhs of electricity employees and engineers across the country today joined hands to observe a protest demonstration maintaining social distance against the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020 and move to privatise the power distribution in Union Territories,” All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) spokesperson V K Gupta said in the statement.
