No payment of ex-gratia for the employees who go on VRS - surplus employees in BSNL can be taken back by the DoT - says the DoP&PW.

The Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare (DoP&PW) has rejected the proposal for making ex-gratia payment for the BSNL employees who opt for VRS. The DoP&PW has stated that the BSNL employees are eligible for payment of government pension after retirement. As such, payment of ex-gratia for those who go on VRS is not permissible, said the DoP&PW. It has also stated that payment of ex-gratia under VRS is eligible only for the Public Sector employees who are not eligible for government pension. An important observation of the DoP&PW is that, surplus employees in BSNL if any, can be taken back by the DoT.

The United States black lists Huawei.

Huawei Technologies is black listed by the US government yesterday. According to this, Huawei cannot buy parts and components from the US companies. In a statement, the US government has stated that, Huawei engaged in activities that are contrary to US national security and foreign policy interests. What the US government has stated, is only a lame excuse. The real reason is that, the US government wants to cripple the growth of Huawei. Till 10 years back, the US and European multinational companies were dominating the telecom equipments manufacturing. But, the Huawei has shattered them and has emerged as the world’s largest manufacturer of telecom equipments now. The US does not want a company of a 3rd world country to become this much dominant in the area of modern technology. At present, Huawei is leading the world, in the 5G technology. The US tried it’s best to stop it’s European allies, from purchasing 5G network equipments from Huawei. But, it was not accepted by the European countries. Out of frustration, the US government has now black listed Huawei. The US imperialism wants to remain as the sole proprietor of modern technologies, so that it’s multinational companies can loot the wealth of the 3rd world countries. However, it is upset that Huawei, a company of a 3rd world country, has defeated it, in the race for hi-technology. The black listing of Huawei has come out the frustration of the US imperialism.

US imperialism is mobilisng 1,20,000 troops to bully Iran..

Media report says that the United States is mobilising 1,20,000 troops in to West Asia. This is nothing, but for bullying Iran. The US has already imposed sanctions against Iran and has ordered that no country should import oil from Iran. Accordingly, even India has stopped importing oil from Iran. Now, the US is mobilising troops massively into West Asia, presumably to attack Iran. Before attacking Iraq also, US mobilised troops in such a massive scale in 2003. The US has already attacked countries like Iraq and Libya and installed it’s puppet government’s. The oil reserves of these countries are now being looted by the US multinational companies. To play a similar game in respect of Iran, the US is mobilising troops now. This move of the US imperialism should be opposed by all the democratic forces.
