LESCO Engineers Association (LEA) has noted what they refer to as obligatory expenditures being covered by staff members for organizing LESCO Open Kechehri which Chairman BoD regularly attends.
According to the meeting minutes, the LEA delegation complained to the LESCO Chief Executive about “the heavy expenses on Open Kachehries borne by the concerned Field Formations.”
An official claimed that the concerned staff members were asked to deposit money in order to hold such gatherings. He claimed that it was intolerable for workers to worry about having to spend money out of their own pockets.
When approached, the power utility’s senior management neither denied nor accepted the claim and made no comments regarding a particular issue brought up in this context.
