The employees and staff of the Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Company (Cescom) staged a demonstration in Mysore on Monday, in protest against the alleged intemperate remarks of MLA Ramesh Kumar against their Bescom counterparts, in Bangalore, recently. The Cescom staff said that the Escom personnel across the State were under duress due to 40 per cent to 50 per cent posts lying vacant in various departments. Provocative statements of Mr. Kumar added to the pressure and therefore such intemperate remarks should be condemned, the protesters said. — Special Correspondent
