Why can't government of India extend soft loan for the revival of BSNL?

Shri V. Muraleedharan, Minister of State for External Affairs, has answered to a question in the Lok Sabha that, India has given soft loan to 63 countries, amounting to $28 billion (Rs.1,93,200 crores). These loans have been extended to countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Caribbean, Oceania and Common Wealth of Independent states. At the time of the two day strike, which took place on 21st & 22nd April, 2015, the Forum demanded that BSNL should be extended soft loan, by the government of India, for the expansion of it’s networks. But, this demand was flatly rejected by the then Secretary, Telecom. When government of India can give away Rs.1,93,200 crores as soft loan to other countries, why can’t it extend soft loan for the revival of BSNL?

Pensioners' organisations are requested not to insinuate, belittling the unions and associations – quoted from the AUAB's circular no.110 dated 07.02.2020.

“ Consequent to the implementation of VRS in BSNL, the pensioners’ organisations have become active in enrolling new members to their organisations, from among the VRS optees. The meeting expressed it’s unhappiness that, certain pensioners organisations, in their anxiety to rope in new membership, are involved in belittling the unions and associations, directly or indirectly. The insinuation is that, the unions and associations are remaining dormant and have not done anything against the government. It must not be forgotten that it is only the unions and associations which have led heroic struggles during the past several years and have settled 78.2% IDA merger, removal of 60% ceiling laid down by the government for the payment of pension and stopped the Union Cabinet’s decision to form the Subsidiary Tower Company. Above all, it is the unions and associations, through their consistent struggles, have forced the government to allot 4G spectrum free of cost, to BSNL. Besides it is the unions and associations which are consistently fighting to settle the pension revision of BSNL retirees. Hence, the meeting requested the pensioners’ associations to maintain self-restrain and to desist from making insinuations, belittling the unions and associations.”

Hindi translation of "Dharna programme with social distancing is to be organised on 26.06.2020."

सोशल डिस्टनसिंग का पालन करते हुए 26.06.2020 को धरना प्रोग्राम आयोजित किया जाए.

आज (15.06.2020) सम्पन्न BSNLEU की सेंट्रल सेक्रेटेरिएट की मीटिंग में निम्न मुद्दों को लेकर, 26.06.2020 को, सोशल डिस्टनसिंग के साथ,धरना प्रोग्राम आयोजित करने का निर्णय लिया गया।


(1) 4G सर्विस की शुरुआत में देरी :

केंद्र सरकार द्वारा 23.10.2019 को BSNL के लिए रिवाइवल प्लान घोषित किया गया। इस प्लान के अनुसार, 79,000 कर्मचारियों की VRS के तहत छंटनी की जा चुकी है। VRS के अलावा BSNL के रिवाइवल के लिए सरकार द्वारा घोषित अन्य किसी भी कदम पर कार्यवाही नहीं की गई है। BSNL द्वारा 4G सर्विस की शुरुआत न करना, इसमें प्रमुख है। BSNL की 4G सर्विस को रोकने के लिए षड्यंत्र रचा गया है। 


(2) BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा विभिन्न मुद्दों का निराकरण नही किए जाना:

BSNL मैनेजमेंट कर्मचारियों की परेशानियों के प्रति असंवेदनशील है। कर्मचारियों को वेतन भुगतान समय पर नहीं किया जा रहा है। कोविड-19 की इस विभीषिका के दौरान भी कर्मचारियों के लिए कैशलेस ट्रीटमेंट उपलब्ध नही है। वर्तमान में उपलब्ध मेडिकल सुविधाएं भी छीनी जा रही है। LIC/PLI प्रीमियम और सोसाइटी के डिडक्शन्स का प्रेषण नही होने से भी कर्मचारी परेशान हो रहे हैं। कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को एक वर्ष से वेजेस का भुगतान नही किया गया है और उनकी वृहद रूप से छंटनी भी की जा रही है। GTI (Group Term Insurance) लागू करने और JTO LICE में छूट (relaxation) में अप्रत्याशित देरी की जा रही है। संक्षेप में यह कि, नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव्ज के किसी भी  मुद्दे का निराकरण BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा नही किया जा रहा है। मैनेजमेंट, पूर्णरूपेण, कर्मचारियों की परेशानियों के प्रति असंवेदनशील है।


उपरोक्त परिस्थिति के परिप्रेक्ष्य में, सेंट्रल सेक्रेटेरिएट द्वारा, सोशल डिस्टनसिंग के साथ, 26.06.2020 को धरना प्रोग्राम आयोजित करने का निर्णय लिया गया है। कोविड-19 के चलते, मीटिंग ने निर्णय लिया कि बड़े स्थानों पर केवल 10 से 15 साथी धरना में शामिल हों। अन्य जगह, केवल 5 साथी शिरकत करें। तख्तियों के प्रदर्शन (Display of placards) और मीडिया में प्रचार की व्यवस्था आवश्यक रूप से करें।

Hindi translation of "M.S.Dhoni, who won two World Cups for India, announces his retirement - BSNLEU salutes the hero."

भारत को 2 विश्वकप दिलाने वाले एम एस धोनी ने रिटायरमेंट की घोषणा की- BSNLEU इस हीरो को सलाम करता है..


भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम को नई ऊंचाइयों पर ले जाने वाले डायनामिक क्रिकेटर महेंद्र सिंह धोनी ने अंतर्राष्ट्रीय क्रिकेट से अपने रिटायरमेंट की घोषणा की।


इस "कैप्टन कूल" के कुशल नेतृत्व में भारत ने 2 वर्ल्ड कप जीते हैं। धोनी का रिटायरमेंट अवश्यम्भावी था, क्योंकि वे अब 39 वर्ष के हो चुके हैं। किन्तु फिर भी जिस तरीके से बगैर किसी बिदाई के वे रिटायर हुए हैं, वह काफी निराशाजनक है।  

एम एस धोनी ने अपना अंतिम मैच जुलाई 2019 में वर्ल्ड कप के सेमी फाइनल में खेला था। उसके बाद उन्हें दरकिनार कर दिया गया। उन्हें, उसके बाद, खेलने का कोई मौका नही दिया गया। इसकी वजह क्या है ? 

जुलाई, 2019 के आसपास झारखंड विधान सभा का चुनाव अभियान अपने चरम पर था। भाजपा, जो कि राज्य में सत्ता में थी, बेहद अलोकप्रिय हो चुकी थी और उसके चुनाव जीतने की कोई संभावनाएं नही थी। ऐसे में, अपनी जीत के लिए, BJP ने झारखंड की माटी के लाल (“the son of the soil”) एम एस धोनी को साधने की कोशिश की। उन्होंने झारखंड चुनाव में BJP के पक्ष में प्रचार करने के लिए एम एस धोनी को मनाने की हर तरह से कोशिश की।

दिनांक 07.07.2019 के अंक में डेक्कन क्रॉनिकल ने खबर प्रकाशित की, कि BJP अध्यक्ष अमित शाह ने मंत्री पीयूष गोयल, BJP के राष्ट्रीय महासचिव सरोज पांडेय और दिल्ली BJP के अध्यक्ष मनोज तिवारी के साथ एम एस धोनी से उनके घर पर मुलाकात की। जाहिर है, यह मुलाकात, एम एस धोनी को झारखंड चुनाव अभियान के लिए मनाने के लिए की गई थी। 

अक्टूबर, 2019 में अमित शाह के बेटे जय शाह BCCI के सेक्रेटरी के रूप में नियुक्त किए गए। इसके बावजूद भी, एम एस धोनी, क्रिकेट जगत में अपनी मेहनत के बूते हासिल प्रतिष्ठा को झारखंड विधान सभा के चुनाव में जीत के लिए BJP द्वारा भुनाए जाने हेतु सहमत नही हुए। अंततः, BJP की चुनाव में पराजय हुई और उसे सत्ता से बेदखल कर दिया गया।

यह वजह है, जिसकी वजह से भारतीय क्रिकेट के महान कप्तान, एम एस धोनी की उपेक्षा की जाती रही और उन्हें उस गरिमा के साथ बिदाई नही दी गई जिसके वें हकदार हैं। बहरहाल, भारत के लोग, भारतीय क्रिकेट में रोमांच निर्मित करने के लिए, इस महान खिलाड़ी और कप्तान के सदैव शुक्रगुजार रहेंगे।

Anti-BSNL policies of the governments that came to power at the Centre are responsible for BSNL's crisis.

Recently, the spokesperson for Congress Party, Randeep Singh Surjewala has blamed the Modi government for the financial woes of BSNL. In reply to this, Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon'ble Minister of State for Communications has stated that BSNL and MTNL, are suffering due to decisions taken under the UPA regime. What Shri Manoj Sinha says is correct. At the same time what Shri Randeep Singh Surjewala said is also perfectly correct. The AUAB has been accusing that BSNL is in a financial crisis today, only because of the anti-BSNL policies adopted by the successive governments that came to power at the Centre. The AUAB has been maintaining that the employees of BSNL are in no way connected with BSNL's present financial condition. What Shri Randeep Singh Surjewala and Shri Manoj Sinha have said, have proved this.
