Two day relay hunger strike called on by the BSNLCCWF, successfully organised throughout the country.

A two day relay hunger strike is organised throughout the country yesterday and today, as per the call of the BSNLCCWF. This relay hunger strike is organised, demanding immediate payment of the 13 month wage arrears of the contract workers and also opposing their retrenchment, being done through the outsourcing. After VRS, the Management has introduced outsourcing in a massive scale and thereby retrenching contract workers. However, as per the reports being received from various circles, maintenance of landlines, Broadband and FTTH connections is seriously affected after the outsourcing and that customers are leaving BSNL. The forthcoming CEC meeting of BSNLEU will seriously discuss this issue and take appropriate action on that.

Question by an employee regarding the pathetic condition of BSNL and the reply given by the CHQ..

One of the employees has sent an e-mail to the CHQ expressing his anguish over the pathetic condition of BSNL. The question raised by the comrade and the reply given by the CHQ are given hereunder. The reply is a message to each and every employee of BSNL.

 

Question.

Sir,

Why BSNL Management/Govt is so relaxed on Revival plan nothing is in progress except VRS. What is going on in organisation everything is confused, it seems Govt. is still in that mood (closure of BSNL). What is the Managements reply for your question why salary fund is being released only union calls upon some type of agitation program. plz clarify sir.

 

Answer.

We have to understand one thing very clearly. The real intention of the government is not to revive BSNL, but to convert it into a sick company like the Air India and ultimately to hand it over to Mukesh Ambani. This is the hidden agenda of the Modi government. We have to fight against this. We have to mobilise the support of the people in favour of BSNL and against the hidden agenda of the government to kill BSNL. The Central Executive Committee meeting of BSNLEU is taking place in September and we will chalk out a programme in this connection. But, don't forget one thing comrade. Each and every employee like you, should make a resolve that, we will not allow BSNL to be converted into a sick company and we will fight against the government's hidden agenda of handing over BSNL to Reliance Jio.

Regards.

Yours fraternally, 

P.Abhimanyu, GS.

Hindi translation of "Question by an employee regarding the pathetic condition of BSNL and the reply given by the CHQ.."

BSNL की दुर्दशापूर्ण स्थिति को लेकर एक कर्मचारी का सवाल और उसका CHQ द्वारा दिया गया जवाब.

एक कर्मचारी द्वारा BSNL की दुर्दशापूर्ण स्थिति को लेकर अपनी पीड़ा व्यक्त करते हुए CHQ को ई-मेल प्रेषित किया गया है। उक्त कॉमरेड द्वारा उठाया गया सवाल और उसका CHQ द्वारा दिया गया जवाब निम्नानुसार प्रस्तुत है। CHQ द्वारा दिया गया जवाब BSNL के प्रत्येक कर्मचारी के लिए एक संदेश है।
 
सवाल:

महोदय,

रिवाइवल प्लान को लेकर BSNL मैनेजमेंट/सरकार इतनी निश्चिंत क्यों है ? VRS के अलावा अन्य मामलों में कोई प्रगति नही है। BSNL में क्या चल रहा है  इसको लेकर हर कोई संशय (confused) में है, ऐसा प्रतीत हो रहा है कि सरकार अभी भी उसी मूड (BSNL को बंद करने) में है। आपके सवाल का मैनेजमेंट द्वारा क्या जवाब दिया गया है, वेतन हेतु फंड्स, यूनियन द्वारा  आंदोलन का कॉल दिए जाने पर ही क्यों जारी किए जाते हैं ? कृपया स्पष्ट कीजिए सर।

जवाब:

हमें, एक बात बेहद साफ तौर पर समझनी होगी। सरकार का वास्तविक उद्देश्य BSNL का रिवाइवल करना नही है, वरन, इसे एयर इंडिया की तरह एक बीमार कंपनी में परिवर्तित कर, अंततोगत्वा मुकेश अम्बानी को सौंपना है। मोदी सरकार का यह छुपा हुआ (hidden) एजेंडा है। हमें इसके खिलाफ लड़ना होगा। हमें BSNL के पक्ष में और BSNL को खत्म करने के सरकार के छुपे हुए एजेंडे के खिलाफ जन समर्थन हासिल करना होगा। BSNLEU की सेंट्रल एग्जीक्यूटिव कमिटी की मीटिंग सितंबर में होने जा रही है, जिसमें, इस संबंध में रणनीति बनाई जाएगी। लेकिन कॉमरेड, एक बात न भूलिएगा। आप जैसे हर एक कर्मचारी को यह संकल्प लेना होगा कि हम BSNL को एक बीमार कंपनी में परिवर्तित नही होने देंगे और सरकार के, BSNL को रिलायंस जियो को सौंपने के छिपे एजेंडे का पुरजोर तरीके से मुकाबला करेंगे।  

आदर सहित,

भवदीय,

Hindi translation of "Why the "PM CARES" Fund is covered by iron curtains?"

"पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड लौह आवरण से आच्छादित क्यों ?....

राष्ट्र को बताया गया है कि "पीएम केयर्स"  फण्ड कोविड-19 महामारी से लड़ने के लिए बनाया गया है।  बहरहाल, इस फण्ड को लेकर कई तरह के विवाद सामने आ रहे हैं। यह भी चिंतनीय तथ्य है कि "पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड का ऑडिट करने का अधिकार CAG को भी नही है। साथ ही, "पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड के एकाउंट्स के संबंध में RTI प्रश्न भी नही किया जा सकता है। इसका आशय यह है कि "पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड पूर्ण रूप से लौह आवरण से आच्छादित है और इसकी गतिविधियां बेहद गोपनीय हैं। क्यों ?

यह एक जाहिर रहस्य (open secret) है कि सरकार द्वारा सभी PSUs को  "पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड में डोनेशन देने के लिए दबाव बनाया गया है। प्राप्त जानकारी अनुसार 55 PSUs पर, "पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड में  धनराशि का योगदान देने हेतु दबाव निर्मित किया गया है। इनमें से अकेले 38 PSUs द्वारा दिया गया डोनेशन ही रु 2,105 करोड़ बनता है। केंद्रीय मंत्रियों ने अपने आफिशियल प्रभाव का उपयोग करते हुए "पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड में डोनेशन देने के लिए PSUs को बाध्य किया है। BSNL में भी इस फण्ड के लिए कर्मचारियों के वेतन से एक दिन के वेतन की कटौती की गई थी। कुछ PSUs द्वारा दिए गए डोनेशन्स का विवरण निम्नानुसार है।

  1. ONGC           – Rs.300 crore
  2.   NTPC          – Rs.250 crore
  3.   Indian Oil     – Rs.225 crore
  4.   Power Grid  – Rs.200 crore
  5.   Power Fin    – Rs.200 crore
  6.   NMDC         – Rs.155 crore
  7.   REC             – Rs.150 crore
  8.   BPCL           – Rs.125 crore
  9.   HPCL           – Rs.120 crore
  10.   Coal India  – Rs.100 crore

 

"पीएम केयर्स" फण्ड के लौह आवरण (अति गोपनीयता) से हमें केवल निम्न मुहावरा याद आता है।

"सत्ता भ्रष्टाचार पनपाती है और निरंकुश सत्ता, पूर्ण रूप से दूषित कर देती है।"

absolute power corrupts absolutely".)

Why the "PM CARES" Fund is covered by iron curtains?

The nation is told that, the “PM CARES” Fund is created for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a lot of controversies are going on about this Fund. It is an alarming fact that, even the CAG has no power to audit the accounts of the PM CARES Fund. Further, no RTI question can be raised about the accounts of PM CARES Fund. It means the PM CARES Fund is completely covered by iron curtains and it’s dealings are highly secret. Why? 

 

It is an open secret that, the government has forced all the PSUs to donate money to the PM CARES Fund. According to the available information, 55 PSUs have been forced to contribute money to the PM CARES Fund. In this, the donations of 38 PSUs alone come to Rs.2,105 crores. The Central Ministers have used their official power to compel the PSUs to give donations to the PM CARES Fund. In BSNL also, one day pay was deducted from employees’ salaries for this Fund. Following are the details of donations given by some of the PSUs. 

 

  1.   ONGC         – Rs.300 crore
  2.   NTPC          – Rs.250 crore
  3.   Indian Oil     – Rs.225 crore
  4.   Power Grid  – Rs.200 crore
  5.   Power Fin   – Rs.200 crore
  6.   NMDC        – Rs.155 crore
  7.   REC           – Rs.150 crore
  8.   BPCL         – Rs.125 crore
  9.   HPCL         – Rs.120 crore
  10.   Coal India  – Rs.100 crore

 

The iron curtains of the PM CARES Fund only remind us the following proverb: -

 

" Power corrupts and 

absolute power corrupts absolutely".

Privatisation of Thiruvananthapuram Airport - difficult to cooperate with the decision - says Com.Pinarayi Vijayan, CM, Kerala.

The Narendra Modi government is moving fast to hand over the wealths of the nation to Indian and Foreign corporates. In this direction, the government has decided to hand over 6 Airports viz., Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Mangaluru, Thiruvananthapuram and Guwahati to Adani Group.

 

 In this connection, Com.Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister, Kerala, has urged upon the Prime Minister to intervene and reconsider the handing over of the management and operation of the Thiruvananthapuram airport to the Adani Group. The Chief Minister of Kerala has also stated that it would be difficult for the state government to co-operate in implementing the handing over Thiruvananthapuram airport to Adani Group.

Hindi translate of "If coal workers and trade unions can achieve, why can’t BSNL employees and the unions / associations?"

यदि कोल् वर्कर्स और उनकी ट्रेड यूनियन्स हासिल कर सकती है तो फिर BSNL कर्मी और यूनियन्स/ एसोसिएशन्स क्यों नही ?

मोदी सरकार ने सम्पूर्ण पब्लिक सेक्टर, भारतीय रेल, डिफेंस प्रोडक्शन फैक्टरीज, पेट्रोलियम (BPCL), इलेक्ट्रिसिटी, बैंकिंग, LIC वगैरह वगैरह के निजीकरण का जबरदस्त अभियान शुरू किया है। 

कोयला खदानों के संबंध में मोदी सरकार ने निर्णय लिया था कि देश भर में 41 कोल् ब्लॉक्स भारतीय और विदेशी कॉर्पोरेट्स को सौंप दिए जाएं। कोल् सेक्टर की सभी ट्रेड यूनियन्स ने निजीकरण का विरोध किया। उन्होंने,आम लोगों के बीच  इस निजीकरण के संबंध में व्यापक अभियान चलाया। तत्पश्चात, सभी कोयला कर्मी 2 से 4 जुलाई, 2020 तक 3 दिन की हड़ताल पर चले गए। हड़ताल पूर्ण रूप से सफल हुई।
 
कोयला कर्मियों की इस आक्रामक हड़ताल के परिणाम स्वरूप अब सरकार को कोयला खदानों का निजीकरण करना काफी कठिन हो गया है। दो बार, सरकार ने 41 कोल ब्लॉक्स की नीलामी हेतु सूचना जारी की। किन्तु, इस नीलामी में शामिल होने के लिए कोई भी आगे नही आया। अतः, सरकार ने नीलामी प्रक्रिया को अक्टूबर/नवंबर 2020 तक आगे बढ़ाया है। कोल सेक्टर की ट्रेड यूनियन्स का भी नवंबर में हड़ताल पर जाना प्रस्तावित है।
  
यदि कोल् वर्कर्स और उनकी ट्रेड यूनियन्स निजीकरण रोकने के लिए लड़ सकती है तो फिर 4G सेवा तत्काल शुरू करने और BSNL को बीमार PSU बनने से बचाने के लिए BSNL कर्मी और यूनियन्स/ एसोसिएशन्स क्यों नही लड़ सकते हैं ?

If coal workers and trade unions can achieve, why can’t BSNL employees and the unions / associations?

The Modi government has launched a vigorous drive for the privatisation of the entire public sector. Indian Railways, Defence production factories, Petroleum (BPCL), Electricity, Banking, LIC, etc., etc. 

 

As regards, coal mines, Modi government decided to hand over 41 coal blocks throughout the country, to the Indian and Foreign corporates. The entire trade unions in the coal sector opposed this privatisation. They massively campaigned among the general public against this privatisation. Thereafter, the entire coal workers went on a 3 day strike from 2nd to 4th July, 2020. The strike was total. 

 

As a result of this militant strike by coal workers, it has now become difficult for the government to privatise the coal mines. Twice, the government notified auctioning of the 41 coal blocks. But, no one came forward to participate in the bidding. Hence, the government has postponed the auctioning to October / November, 2020. The trade unions in the coal sector are also proposing to go on strike in November, 2020. 

 

If the coal workers and trade unions can fight to stop privatisation, why can’t BSNL employees and unions / associations fight for starting 4G service immediately and to stop BSNL from becoming a sick PSU?
