Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala State Electricity Board decided to temporarily withdraw the disciplinary action against the CPM affiliated Officers Association. The settlement came after the unofficial meetings conducted by minister K Krishnankutty with the association leaders.

The statement of the board directors mentioned that the disciplinary actions taken in April will be withdrawn until the board overcomes scarcity of power.

The transferred officers took up charges in their respective offices on Saturday. Association president MG Suresh Kumar, B Harikumar and Jasmine Banu joined at Perinthalmanna, Palakkad and Seethathode office respectively. Though the association demanded to revoke the transfers along with repealing suspensions, the government did not consider it. Hence, the leaders were compelled to take up charges as the protests continued for an indefinite period. However, they will be transferred again to a comfortable place later.

With the intervention of the government, the board chairman was also forced to yield for the demands of the protesters. The board decided to withdraw action against the officers who interrupted the conference of the chairman.

A meeting of minister K Krishnankutty with the Officers’ Association has been scheduled on May 5.
