Hold demonstrations on 20.09.2012
Give a befitting reply to the atrocious decisions of the UPA government
The UPA government wants to serve the US and the Multi National companies, rather than serving the common people of our country. That is why ruthlessly it has taken decisions to allow FDI in multi brand retail, hike the price of diesel, cut down the supply of subsidised cylinders etc. The whole country will hit back at these policies, on 20th September, 2012. The CHQ of BSNLEU has called upon to hold powerful country wide protest demonstrations on 20th September, 2012.
Hold the programme successfully.
[19.09.2012]Indore comrades create a record
The Accounts & Commercial Branch of Indore, in Madhya Pradesh Circle, has created record. This the biggest Branch Union in M.P. Circle, with 140 members. This Branch consists of a good number of lady comrades. In the Branch Conference held on 07.09.2012, a new team of office-bearers are elected. The beauty of the election is that, all the office-bearers are lady comrades. More important aspect of this election is that, the male comrades of that branch took the initiative to hold such an election. The requirement of our movement is that more and more lady comrades should be encouraged to actively participate in the union activities. The election held in the Accounts and Commercial Branch of Indore, will definitely send a positive message in this direction to the entire country. CHQ congratulates the new team of office-bearers and appreciates the good work done by our Indore comrades, especially, the District Secretary, Com. Prakash Sharma.
