THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Financial Corporation Officers' Association and the Kerala Financial Corporation Employees Association have alleged a smear campaign by the corporation management against them following their protest against denial of promotion to an eligible Scheduled Caste officer.
At a news conference here on Monday, employees' association president C.B.C. Warrier and secretary B.R. Sajith and officers' association secretary J. Francis said the officers and employees who had gone to the corporation managing director's office on May 17 to discuss the promotion issue were being accused of having locked him up, though no such incident had happened.
The corporation's vigilance officer and its general manager were present at the discussion and the union leaders had left the office after seeking a response to their demands within one month. However, within half-an-hour of their departure, the main leaders were transferred indiscriminately with the campaign that they had sought promotion for a person who had failed in the eligibility examination.
The selection committee, including an outside expert, had conducted the promotion interview on October 10 last. The then Finance Minister T. M. Thomas Isaac had stayed the decision of the committee.
The relevant file was kept under wraps till the government change and the promotion order issued on May 16, the union leaders alleged and called upon the corporation management to desist from its smear campaign against the union leaders and repeal the transfer orders.
