      Badnawar (Madhya Pradesh): On the call of Madhya Pradesh Electricity Employees Welfare Federation, employees of power companies and outsourced electricity workers across the state have been on an indefinite strike since January 21. The strike aims to get their charter of five-point demands accepted by the state government.

      Nearly, 1k employees, officers and engineers of Dhar and 270 workers from Badnawar town have boycotted work and are on a dharna due to which departmental work has been affected.

      Demanding restoration of the old pension scheme as well as regularisation of their jobs, hike in accident insurance amount, were the main aims of the strike. After the assurance of the government to meet their demands, employees postponed the agitation for 15 days, but due to inaction from the government, they have resumed their indefinite strike.
