Expressing resentment over the order of the Chief Engineer, he said the employees presently working as a meter reader are not able to enter the meter reading through e-utility application without any training and most of the employees are even unable to operate smart phone.

Gupta said the employees presently working as Meter Reader belongs to different cadres and are not so sound technically to handle smart phones and e-utility application. He said the age profile of such employees is such that they cannot handle the software leading to failure of uploading the correct pictures of installed meters and non-compliance of such instructions will call for action against them and they will be subjected to mental harassment.

He said the Government should provide handsets to the employees after proper training and see whether they are able to use it properly or not before putting them on compliance. Stating that the meter reading will require internet data usage and such usage charges will have to be borne by employees.

Gupta said that the daily wager employees cannot bear this burden. He demanded at least Rs 500 per month be provided to each employee, who has given the job of meter reading.

Manish Saini led the Shivsena party on Friday protested against the Central Government in the Pegasus Snoopgate case. The protestors prepared a bier and put their smartphones on it, showcasing the last rites of the smartphones. The party demanded that a thorough investigation should take place in the case.

While talking to the media, Saini said, “today, we are protesting against the phone incident. So many political leaders, Journalists and business people have become victims of this phone tapping incident. A third person now sees the data in our smartphones which earlier belonged to us, so we are destroying them as we don’t want our privacy to get affected. My appeal to PM Narendra Modi is that a probe by a free agency should take place, and a Data protection bill should be introduced in the Country”.

Yesterday Senior Congress leaders, along with youth congress, protested against the same issue and demanded the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.
