BSNL Employees Union (CHQ), New Delhi

Com.Seethalakshmi, former General Secretary of P-IV Union (NFPE), passed away.

CHQ is extremely saddened to hear that, Com.Seethalakshmi, former General Secretary of the All India Postman and Class-IV Union (NFPE), has passed away on 01st August, 2020, at her residence in Bengaluru. Only very recently she was diagnosed to be having cancer.  As we remember, Com.Seethalakshmi is the only woman comrade, who had reached the highest post of the General Secretary of an all India union, in the P&T Trade Union movement. Even when many male comrades hesitate to leave their native places and to come over to work in the union head-quarters at Delhi, Com.Seethalakshmi boldly took over the post of the General Secretary and shifted to New Delhi. She was a great friend and well wisher of BSNLEU. She also addressed and graced our Mysuru All India Conference, held in December, 2018. Com. Seetha Lakshmi had also served as the Deputy General Secretary of the National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE) and had taken active part in the Central Government employees, as well as in the general trade union movement. In the death of Com.Seethalakshmi, we have lost an ardent crusader for the cause of the working class. BSNLEU dips it’s banner and pays it’s respectful homage to Com.Seethalakshmi. BSNLEU also conveys it’s heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of Com.Seethalakshmi.

Former advisors of BSNL, Deloitte and KPMG are frauds- charges government.

It is interesting to note that the government is moving the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) to debar two companies which are engaged by the BSNL Management in the past, for the revival of BSNL. One is Deloitte and the other is BSR, which is an arm of the KPMG. Both, Deloitte and BSR, had earlier acted as auditors of the Infrastructure leasing and Finance Services (IL& FS). A massive corruption of Rs.95,000 crore has taken place in IL&FS, as a result of which that company has collapsed now. The Corporate Affairs Ministry has alleged that both the Deloitte and BSR (KPMG) have helped in the commitment of Rs. 95,000 crore. Based on the recommendations of Deloitte and KPMG, BSNL Management had taken many steps for the revival of BSNL. Now, all can understand what sort of advise/ recommendations could have been given by these two companies, for the revival of BSNL.
