[03.12.2010]CHQ conveys revolutionary greetings
CHQ conveys it’s revolutionary greetings for all the comrades who organized and participated in the strike. This was a glorious struggle to save BSNL. The strike was very successful with the whole hearted participation of the Non-Executives and Executives. The 3 lakh workforce has told in one voice and with determination that the game plan of the government and other vested interests to weaken BSNL will not be tolerated any more.
Comrades, viability of BSNL was the main demand of our struggle. As all of us know that it is not a demand which can be settled in a single day. Rather, it is a continuous process to be persued with the government. Our strike has given out a strong massage to the government that BSNL workers and officers are very serious in restoring the viability of BSNL. Taking the message in right perspective, the new Secretary, DoT has assured his whole hearted support to strengthen BSNL. JAC will seriously pursue this issue through the Secretary, DoT. BSNL management has assured us that it would procure equipments for another 15 million lines, in addition to the 5.5 million lines for which tender is almost finalized. JAC will continue to pressurise both the BSNL management as well as govt. of India to take appropriate steps to strengthen BSNL. The record of discussion given by the BSNL management is placed herewith for information. <
