The final meeting of the Designations Committee was held on 26.09.2017, in which the new Designations of the left out Non-Executive cadres were finalised. However, while releasing the minutes of this meeting, the Management Side inserted a paragraph, wherein it is stated that the job description (duties and responsibilities) could also be changed, due to the change in designations. This was strongly protested by GS, BSNLEU, since such a condition was neither discussed in the meeting, nor accepted by the Staff Side. BSNLEU gave a complaint to the Director (HR), protesting the unfair practice of the Management. Consequent to this, a meeting of the Designations Committee is convened today. Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS and Com. Balbir Singh, President, participated. Com. John Verghese, AGS, was present as observer. Representatives of BSNLEU strongly objected to the manipulated draft minutes, released for the meeting held on 26.09.2017. Consequent to this, it was decided in today’s meeting, to release the minutes, by deleting the above stated paragraph. It is also decided in today’s meeting that, the Technician Grade II (Telecom Factory) is to be redesignated as Telecom Technician.

An High Networth Individual is defined as the one who is having investable assets of over 1 million US Dollars. According to this report, the number of such Dollar Millionaires in India comes to 2.6 lakh people. Their asset worth is a whopping 1 trillion US Dollars! It is also worth mentioning here that, the International Rights Group, Oxfam, has reported that in India, 73% of the wealth created in 2017, has reached the hands of the top 1% of the population, whereas the bottom 67 crore Indians have got only 1% of this wealth. This is how the Narendra Modi government is serving the poor people of this country.

Accusing that the United Nations Human Rights Council is biased against Israel, the US has left the Council. The US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley has also criticised that the UN Human Rights Council is a ‘cesspool of political bias’. The United Nations Human Rights Council is continuously criticising Israel for it’s forcible occupation of Palestine territories, and also for violation of human rights in those territories. By quitting the UN Human Rights Council, the real face of the US has been exposed. This has also strengthened the criticism that US is the worst violator of human rights. It may also be recollected that the US, under Donald Trump, has also left the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
