''Winds of war'' blowing around the world - Pope Francis expressed his sadness in his Christmas message.

In the Christmas message, Pope Francis has expressed concern that, tension has gripped many areas of the world. He has stated that winds of war are blowing in many parts of the world. He has made particular mention about those areas of the world, where tension is created by the recent provocative steps taken by the US president, Donald Trump. He has stated that, “ suffering is reflected in the faces of the little children in the Middle East”. This is the area, gripped by tension by the recent announcement of Donald Trump that Jerusalem should be the capital of Israel. The Pope has also prayed for an end to the confrontation escalating in the Korean Peninsula. This is the area, where tension is being built by the US. It is having thousands of atom bombs, sufficient to destroy this world many hundred times. But, it is threatening that the North Korea should not test nuclear bombs.

BSNLEU raises it's objection with the CMD BSNL, on the misleading reply given in the Lok Sabha, with regards to the outsourcing of the maintenance of BSNL's towers.

A question has been raised in the Lok Sabha on 07.02.2018, with regards to the outsourcing the maintenance of BSNL’s towers. While replying to this question, Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble MoS(C), had replied that BSNL had floated tender to outsource the maintenance of 26,287 towers. In this reply, the Hon’ble Minster had also stated that the employees’ union has not opposed this outsourcing. Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS and Com. Ramesh Chand, Org. Secretary (CHQ), met Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL, today, and discussed this issue. The representatives questioned how reply was given in the Lok Sabha that, the outsourcing of maintenance of towers was not opposed by employees’ union, when this issue was not at all discussed by the Management with the unions and associations. The CMD BSNL replied that BSNL floated this tender 3 years ago, on which some private agencies have filed case in the Supreme Court. Since the case is still pending in the Court, this outsourcing has not yet been approved by either BSNL’s Management Committee or Board of Directors, and as such, the issue was not discussed by the Management with the unions and associations. When the General Secretary pointed out that the ambiguity in this reply should have been avoided, the CMD BSNL agreed with him.

Hindi translation of "Finance Ministry unconvinced to allot 4G spectrum to BSNL."

BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम आवंटित करने हेतु वित्त मंत्रालय सहमत नही...
दिनांक 28-03-2019 के न्यू इंडियन एक्सप्रेस की रिपोर्ट के अनुसार वित्त मंत्रालय BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम आवंटित करने हेतु  सहमत नही है।  अखबार की खबर के अनुसार स्पेक्ट्रम का अनुमानित मूल्य रु 13,885 करोड़ है। सरकार को प्रस्तुत अपने प्रस्ताव में BSNL ने कहा है कि इस राशि का 50% BSNL 10 समान किश्तों में भुगतान करेगा और  शेष 50% का सरकार द्वारा अपनी पूंजी (capital infusion) के माध्यम से समायोजन किया जाएगा। इसका मतलब यह हुआ कि सरकार अपनी शेयर कैपिटल में लगभग रु 6942.50 करोड़ की वृद्धि करेगी। वस्तुतः, सरकार को इस हेतु अपनी ओर से एक नया पैसा भी खर्च नही करना है। ऐसे में, वित्त मंत्री BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम के आवंटन के पक्ष में क्यों नही है ? ज्ञातव्य है कि पूर्व में नीति आयोग ने भी  BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम के आवंटन का विरोध किया है। क्या नीति आयोग और वित्त मंत्रालय इस तथ्य को भूल गए हैं कि BSNL सरकार की अपनी कंपनी है ? अब स्थिति बिल्कुल स्पष्ट है। सरकार यह कदापि नही चाहती कि BSNL का रिवाइवल हो और वह रिलायंस जियो के सुदृढ प्रतिस्पर्धी के रूप में उभरे।

We are proud that there is one courageous chief minister in this country.

Public sector assets are the wealth of the Nation. They belong to the people. But the Narendra Modi government is brazenly and generously carrying out the job of handing over all these peoples wealth to the big corporates. As a part of this decision, the Modi government has already taken the decision to hand over six airports to Adani Group. All these airports are developed with people’s money. Thiruvananthapuram international airport is one among those 6 airports. The Kerala government is stiffly opposing the handing over of the Thiruvananthapuram airport to the private. Instead of handing over to the Adani Group, the Kerala government wants to take over this airport. But it is not accepted by the Union government. Under these circumstances, Shri Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister of Kerala, has told the state assembly yesterday that, the Kerala government would resist the union government’s move to hand over the Thiruvananthapuram airport to the Adani Group. Further, Shri Pinarayi Vijayan has also cautioned that, no private player can mange the airport, without the cooperation and support of the state government.

"Hats off to Shri Pinarayi Vijayan."
