Hindi translation of "Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad once again takes over as the Minister of Communications."

 

श्री रवि शंकर प्रसाद एक बार पुनः संचार मंत्री बने...
श्री रवि शंकर प्रसाद, एक प्रतिष्ठित अधिवक्ता और मंजे हुए राजनेता, ने एक बार पुनः माननीय संचार मंत्री के रूप में पदभार ग्रहण किया है। श्री मनोज सिन्हा के पदभार ग्रहण करने तक, 2014 से संचार का यह पद उनके पास पूर्व में भी था। श्री रवि शंकर प्रसाद, कॉल ड्राप के मुद्दे पर निजी कंपनियों को आड़े हाथों लेने का साहस प्रदर्शित करने वाले प्रथम संचार मंत्री थे। सत्ताधारी बीजेपी के वरिष्ठ लीडर होने के नाते श्री रवि शंकर प्रसाद, अपने निर्णयों का निर्भीकता पूर्वक क्रियान्वयन करने के लिए जाने जाते हैं। हमें उम्मीद है कि माननीय मंत्री महोदय बीएसएनएल के रिवाइवल के प्रकरण में DoT में बैठे नौकरशाहों द्वारा निर्मित अवरोधों को दूर करने में सफल होंगे। BSNLEU, श्री रवि शंकर प्रसाद का अभिनंदन करते हुए आश्वासित करती है कि बीएसएनएल के रिवाइवल हेतु वह पूर्णरूपेण सहयोग करेगी।

WFTU - TUI Transports & Communications raises it's voice against US aggressions in Venezuela.

It is a well known fact that the US imperialism is taking all out efforts to overthrow the elected government in Venezuela. The US imperialism has already imposed sanctions on Venezuela, to cripple it’s economy. The US has ordered that no country should import oil from Venezuela. Billions of dollars are being pumped into Venezuela, by the US imperialism, to oust Maduro, who is the democratically elected president of Venezuela. The whole game plan of the US imperialism is to topple the elected government of Venezuela, and to install it’s puppet government in that country, so as to loot the huge oil reserves that Venezuela is having. The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) and the Trade Union International (TUI Transports & Communications) have raised their voices against the blatant aggression of the US imperialism on Venezuela. The leaders of the TUI Transports & Communications, belonging to France, Britain, Russia, Turkey, etc., have gone to Venezuela now, to express their solidarity to the people of Venezuela, and against the aggression of US imperialism in that country. BSNLEU heartily congratulates all the leaders of the TUI Transports & Communications, who are participating in this programme and shares their spirit of solidarity with Venezuela.

Long live the elected government of Venezuela !

Down with aggressions of US imperialism !!
