Srikakulam: Non-gazetted Officers (NGOs) alleged that the imposition of Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) against agitating employees by the government was unfair. In this context, employees of the Treasury Department staged a silent protest at the local Seven Roads Junction here on Sunday.
