Wholesale inflation touches 4 year high.

Inflation at wholesale level has reached a 4 year high. This is according to the official data released by the government last Monday. The real upward push in the wholesale inflation has taken place in the crude petroleum and natural gas segments. It is interesting to note that, internationally, the price of crude oil fell steeply, after the present government came to power in May, 2015. However, in India, the price of petrol and diesel kept on rising due to the frequent and huge taxes imposed by the government on petrol and diesel.

May Day 2019 - Organise "Save BSNL - Save Nation" rallies at all circle and district head quarters.

The All India Centre meeting of BSNLEU held today, has decided to call upon the circle and district unions to observe this year’s May Day by organising “Save BSNL – Save Nation” rallies at all circle and district head quarters. The rallies should start with the hoisting of BSNLEU’s flag. Maximum participation by members should be ensured. The rallies should be effectively utilised to campaign among the general public, about the anti-BSNL policies of the government, and also about the need to strengthen BSNL as a Public Sector Company. The issues of immediate allotment of 4G spectrum, financial assistance for the revival of BSNL, wage revision, pension revision, transfer of assets to BSNL, approval for BSNL’s Land Management Policy, opposition to VRS, etc., should also be effectively highlighted in these rallies.

Why government should ensure capital infusion for the financial revival of BSNL?

BSNLEU demands that the government should ensure BSNL’s financial revival through capital infusion. It is being argued in the media that why should government waste the tax payer’s money for helping BSNL and MTNL. It is nothing but true that, BSNL has not received even a single naya paisa, as financial assistance from the tax payer’s money, during it’s existence of 18½ years. But at the same time, the Times of India dated 17th July, 2019, has reported the government has made a capital infusion of Rs.2.69 lakh crore in the public sector banks during 2018-19 and 2019-20. This capital infusion is made to help the public sector banks, which have written off  lakhs of crores of rupees as bad loans. It must be remembered that, a bulk of these bad loans are taken by the big corporates and not returned by them. The capital infusion made by the government is only to enable the public sector banks to give fresh loans to the big corporates. So, when the government can make capital infusion of Rs.2.69 lakh crores in the Public Sector banks, and that too within a period of two years, why can't it make capital infusion for the financial revival of BSNL? Our demand is more justified because, it is only because of the anti- BSNL steps of the government, that BSNL has been ruined.

Criticism of the government is not anti-national – says justice Deepak Gupta.

Supreme Court judge, justice Deepak Gupta said on Monday that, Indian citizens have the right to criticise the government, and dissenters cannot be labelled as anti-nationals for holding contrary views. He was delivering a lecture on “Democracy and Dissent”, organised by the Supreme Court Bar Association in the national Capital. The judge emphasised on an individual’s right to dissent, saying it is not just a principle enshrined in the Constitution but also a basic human right. “Criticism of any institution is to be protected — the executive, legislature, judiciary, and even the armed forces. There is no holy cow when it comes to dissent,” Gupta said. “If we stifle criticism of these institutions, we shall become a police state instead of a democracy.”

Conciliation meeting held by RLC(C), New Delhi, on the issues of 3rd PRC, 4G, Pension Revision, Payment of Pension Contribution by BSNL and other issues - AUAB places strong arguments.

A conciliation meeting is held today, through video conferencing, by the Regional Labour Commissioner (Central), New Delhi. The meeting is held to discuss the issues contained in the charter of demands, for the 3 day strike, called on by the AUAB and held on 18th to 20th February, 2019. From the AUAB, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & convenor, AUAB, Com. S. Sivakumar, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com. Anil Kumar, GS, BSNL ATM and Com.H.P. Singh, GS, BSNL OA attended. Nobody attended the meeting from the BSNL Management Side.

 

In his submission to the RLC, Com.P.Abhimanyu, Convenor, argued the following. This 3 day strike was organised on very important issues of the employees, such as 3rd PRC, starting 4G service by BSNL, pension revision, payment of pension contribution as per Government Rules and other important issues.

 

(1)        As regards the Wage Revision, BSNL Management formed the Joint Wage Negotiation Committee, as per the directive of the DoT. After holding many sittings of this joint committee, the Management arbitrarily stopped conducting the meetings.

 

(2)      Still BSNL is not being allowed to launch it’s 4G service, despite the announcement of the government that, 4G spectrum is allotted to the Company. Even recently, the government has cancelled the tender floated by BSNL, to procure 4G equipments. 

 

(3)        As regards, the pension revision of BSNL retirees, Shri Manoj Sinha, the then Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications, has assured that the Pension Revision of the retired employees would be delinked from Pay Revision of the serving employees. However, thereafter, the DoT had gone back from this assurance. 

 

(4)        Shri Manoj Sinha, the then Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications has assured that Government Rule will be implemented in the matter of collecting pension contributions from BSNL. However, this assurance has also been thrown to the winds, by the DoT.

 

The Convenor demanded that another conciliation meeting should be called on expeditiously and officers who are empowered to take decisions, should be called from BSNL and the DoT to attend the meeting. After hearing the views of the representatives of the AUAB, the RLC(C) ordered that the next conciliation meeting would be held at 10:30 am on 24.09.2020.
