BSNL में जमीन घोटाले को रोकिए- BSNLEU ने सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम को लिखा...
BSNLEU यह जान कर बेहद विचलित है कि रिवाइवल पैकेज के नाम पर BSNL के बेशकीमती लैंड पार्सल्स स्पेशल परपज वेहिकल (SPV) को स्थान्तरित  किए जा रहे हैं। इसके बदले में ये लैंड पार्सल्स SPV द्वारा नाममात्र मूल्य पर कॉर्पोरेट उद्यमियों को सौंप दिए जाएंगे। BSNLEU के अनुसार यह एक बहुत बड़ा जमीन घोटाला है। BSNLEU ने BSNL में इस   घोटाले को रोकने के लिए शीघ्र हस्तक्षेप की मांग करते हुए सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम को लिखा है।

Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) should be withdrawn.

Widespread protests are taking place throughout the country, demanding the withdrawal of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has questioned which Indian Citizen, who is a Muslim, is affected by the CAA. It is sad that the Prime Minister is diverting the issue. The problem in the CAA is that, for the first time, the citizenship of our country will be determined based on religion. This has never happened before. Mahatma Gandhi said that India belongs to the people of all religions and not to the people of any particular religion. And that is the reason why he was killed. The demand that the CAA should be withdrawn is justified and the government and the ruling party should review their stand.

Who will protect the daughters of mother India?

Following the Kathua, Unao and Chennai rape incidents, another heart-rending episode involving the rape of minor children has come to the fore. 34 helpless minor girls, aged between 7 and 17, housed in a shelter at Muzaffarpur, Bihar, have been subjected to rape, over a long period. Most of them are speech-impaired children. It is reported that these children’s are given sedatives with dinner, and then raped in the night. Prime accused of this case, Brajesh Thakur, who is running the home, is said to be close to the politicians. The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) has unearthed this crime. The episode of innocent children getting subjected to rape continues unabated. When so much noise is being made in this country to protect cows, who is there to protect these daughters of mother India.

  1. माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री द्वारा वेज रिवीजन, पेंशन रिवीजन, 4G स्पेक्ट्रम का आवंटन और कर्मचारियों के वास्तविक मूल वेतन पर आधारित पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन का भुगतान आदि मुद्दों पर दिए गए आश्वासनों के क्रियान्वयन में हो रहे विलंब के खिलाफ AUAB द्वारा लिए गए आंदोलन के निर्णय का भी मीटिंग ने स्वागत किया। मीटिंग ने 30.11.2018 तक मुद्दों का निराकरण होने की स्थिति में AUAB के हड़ताल पर जाने के निर्णय का भी समर्थन किया। मीटिंग ने सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट यूनियन्स से पुनः  पूर्ण गंभीरता के साथ स्ट्राइक और जरूरी होने पर अनिश्चितकालीन हड़ताल की सफलता के लिए कर्मचारियों को लामबंद करने का आव्हान किया।

Hindi translation of "AUAB demands the CMD BSNL to discuss with the AUAB about the roadmap for the revival of BSNL."

AUAB की मांग : बीएसएनएल के रिवाइवल हेतु रणनीति (रोडमैप) के लिए CMD BSNL, AUAB से चर्चा करें...

BSNL अब ऐसी स्थिति में है कि वह अपने कर्मचारियों को वेतन का भुगतान भी नही कर पा रहा है। यदि यही स्थिति बरकरार रही तो कर्मचारियों को आगामी महीनों में भी वेतन मिलना दुष्कर होगा। इसी दौरान, बिजली कनेक्शन आदि विच्छेदित हो जाने से बीएसएनएल की सेवाओं में भी गिरावट आ रही है। इससे और अधिक राजस्व नुकसान हो रहा है। अतः AUAB ने CMD BSNL से आज सम्पन्न मीटिंग में बीएसएनएल को वर्तमान संकट पूर्ण स्थिति (crisis) से उबारने हेतु रोडमैप तैयार करने के लिए AUAB के साथ विस्तार पूर्ण मीटिंग करने का अनुरोध किया है। CMD BSNL ने AUAB की इस मांग को स्वीकार करते हुए आश्वासित किया है कि इस संबंध में शीघ्र ही चर्चा की जाएगी।

Who are those opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA)?

Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has said, “look at the dress of the people who are protesting against CAA. You can understand who they are.” Further, it is also being propagated that, the protests are being instigated by “Urban Naxals”. These statements are nothing but tactics to divert the issue. Let us have a look as to who are all protesting the CAA.

Ramachandra Guha, Historian and writer has been arrested at Bengaluru.

Yogendra Yadav. “For the first time after Independence, our citizenship is being linked to our religion.”

Chetan Bhagat, Writer – “CAA is a life jacket. But, Muslims don’t get the life jacket. Distributing life jackets is not the problem. Giving them only to a few and pushing everyone off the plane is the problem.”

Kamal Haasan, Actor. “Applaud with glee at the stupidity of the government for stoking the fire of Satyagraha by arresting the thinking and questioning minds of India like Ram Guha & Yogendra Yadav.”

Harbajan Singh, Cricketer has expressed his shock for the attacks that have taken place on the students of Jamia Milia University. In the attacks, one student has lost his eye. “His crime is that he is a human”, said Harbajan Singh.

Priyanka Chopra, Celebrity.  “In a thriving democracy, to raise one’s voice peacefully and be met with violence is wrong. Every voice counts. And each voice will work towards changing India.”
