Water Supply Board Engineers have launched a strike.
The engineers have launched the strike in protest against improper granting of promotions to about 200 assistant engineers.
Former National Water Supply Board Engineers Union Chairman Rohan Jayantha told our news team that promotions had thus been given in order to fulfill the private requirements of several assistant engineers.
We inquired regarding this situation from the Chairman of the water supply board Karunapala Hettiarachchi
The chairman stated that although engineers engage in a strike, water will be supplied without any hindrance.
