The Centre needs to act to urgently revive strategically important BSNL.

The employees of BSNL are struggling, demanding immediate steps to be taken by the government for the revival of BSNL. At this crucial juncture, Business Line, one of the prominent financial newspapers of the country, has demanded that the government should take urgent steps for the financial revival of BSNL. This is a good development. Business Line has argued that the consumers of India need a strong Public Sector company like BSNL, to safeguard themselves from the high tariffs of the private telecom companies. This is an important view and we strongly support it. Similarly, Business Line argues that BSNL’s vacant lands should be monetised, and the proceeds (amount) should be invested for the modernisation and expansion of it’s networks. We strongly support this view also. However, we do not endorse the view of Business Line saying that VRS should be implemented.

Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology tells government to allot 4G spectrum to BSNL and MTNL.

The Standing Committee on Information Technology has told the government to allot 4G spectrum to BSNL and MTNL at the earliest. The Committee has told in it’s report that allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and MTNL will help them to compete and survive in the market. The Committee is of the strong view that BSNL and MTNL will lose their data market, if they are not allotted 4G spectrum soon. However, the flip-side of the report is that, it has also told the government to consider the voluntary retirement scheme submitted by both the PSUs.

Corporates pollute the environment - Do not care for the lives of the common people - brutal firing by police in Tamil Nadu, killing ten and seriously injuring more than hundred.

In yet another incident, which shows that the government machinery will go to any extent to defend the interests of the big corporates and the multinational companies, 10 innocent people have been killed, and more than a hundred people are seriously injured in the police firing yesterday, at Tuticorin, in Tamil Nadu. The people in and around Tuticorin town have been conducting struggles, demanding closure of a copper smelter unit, belonging to the Sterlite company. This company is a part of the multinational Vedanta Group. This smelter unit has been causing serious health hazards to the people of Tuticorin city. Serious health problems like cancer, kidney ailments are being caused due to the pollution created by this smelter unit. This is yet another example which shows that big corporates have no care for the environment or the health of the people, but making big profits is only their ambition. BSNLEU strongly condemns the Tamil Nadu government for this brutal police firing. BSNLEU also strongly demands the immediate closure of Sterlite smelter unit at Tuticorin and appropriate compensation to the families of the victims and injured.

Those killed in the police firing at Tuticorin.
