Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, presented the note for discussion. Thereafter, deliberations by the Central Office bearers started. All the comrades who have spoken so far appreciated the functioning of the CHQ for it’s lively functioning and for taking up all the issues of the employees, even at this pandemic situation. Many speakers severely criticised the anti-public sector and anti-BSNL policies of the Modi government. The total failure of the Central Government in tackling the second wave of the COVID-19 was also severely criticised. The speakers expressed their concern over the heavy delay in launching BSNL’s 4G service, the decision to monetise BSNL’s towers and optic fibres, non-payment of salary on the due date, etc. Strong opinion was also expressed that, the AUAB should give a call for agitational programmes on these issues, in whichever method possible. The meeting is continuing.
