Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, met Ms. Samita Luthra, GM (Rectt.), Shri Saurabh Tyagi, Sr.GM(Estt.), today and discussed the following issues.
The JTO LICE was held on 26.05.2019. However, declaration of the results of this exam is getting abnormally delayed. In today’s discussion, the GM (Rectt.) replied that the declaration of the results is being delayed due to the dispute regarding the method of implementation of SC/ST reservation. The DoP&T has issued contradictory instructions in respect of treating the SC/ST candidates who get high marks. The dispute is, whether they will come under the SC/ST category, or in the General category. The GM(Rectt.) replied that the matter is getting clarified from the CLO. The General Secretary demanded that the Management should find out a way and that the declaration of the result cannot be delayed endlessly. The GS demanded that the Management should take decision and declare the result at the earliest, say within 10 days.
The Corporate Office has issued a letter on 21.08.2019, keeping the JE LICE, TT LICE and the JTO to SDE (Arch) LICE, under abeyance. This is affecting the promotional avenues of the Non-Executives. In today’s meeting, the General Secretary demanded that the TT LICE and JE LICE should be held immediately. The GM (Rectt.) replied that the LICEs have been kept under abeyance, to work out the vacancies afresh. The General Secretary stated that BSNLEU will not permit the Management to delay the holding of LICEs. BSNLEU will further take up this issue with CMD BSNL and Director (HR), so that the LICEs meant for the Non-Executives are held without further delay.

During the past two / three decades, we have been witnessing what was happening in the health-care sector. The successive governments had systematically weakened the government hospitals and the government primary health centres, by cutting down the fund allotments. At the same time, private hospitals have come up in a big way. They were looting the people mercilessly. Their colourful advertisements were occupying our TV screens. But now, all of a sudden, we realise that only the government hospitals are coming to the rescue of the people, to fight the Corona Virus menace. In many places, the government is converting hotels and colleges into temporary hospitals. Reports say that, in Europe, where the Corona Virus disease is at it’s peak, the entire health care sector has been taken over by the government, at least temporarily. All these developments indicate that, in the days to come, the government health-care system has got a crucial role to play and hence, it should be strengthened. This is the lesson that the Corona Virus teaches us.
Leaders of BSNL unions and associations, submitted memorandum to Hon’ble MP, shri Anshul Verma, Hardoi.
The Modi government has targeted to raise Rs. 72,500 crore through disinvestments in Public Sector companies, in the next financial year. This is almost double the target of the current financial year, fixed at Rs. 45,500 crore. This means severe attack is going to be launched on the public sector companies, including BSNL. Already, the government has taken decision to raise Rs. 11,000 crore by way of disinvestments in general insurance companies. The working class has to unitedly stop this onslaught.

K.K. Venugopal, the Attorney General of India, who is representing the Government of India in the Supreme Court, surprised every one yesterday, by openly expressing his disgust, at the failure of Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Delhi Governments, to take stern measures against mob violence. It is very important to note that Maharashtra and Rajasthan are ruled by the BJP governments, while the law and order in Delhi is being maintained by the Central Government. The Attorney General further said that no civilised country can tolerate mob violence. This remark was made by the Attorney General, before a Supreme Court Bench, consisting of Dipak Misra, Chief Justice of India, and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud. The Bench is hearing a public interest litigation against mob violence. The Judges, on their part remarked that, in the name of religion, no group can be permitted to indulge in violence.
BSNLEU is continuously demanding the settlement of the problem of the Sr.TOAs who are downgraded from the pay scale of 7100 to 6500. The Management has already accepted to resolve this problem by providing one more opportunity to the officials to exercise a fresh option under NEPP. However, this letter has not been issued so far by the Corporate Office. Com.P. Abhimanyu, GS, met Shri Saurabh Tyagi, Sr.GM(Estt.), today and enquired about this case. The Sr.GM(Estt.) replied that the letter could not be issued since the concerned AGM has gone for training. However, he assured to issue the letter next week.
BSNLEU is continuously pursuing the case of holding the JE LICE at the earliest. The file for fixing the date of the JE LICE went to the CMD BSNL, who, in turn, wanted to know the justification of the posts in the present scenario. Hence, the matter is to be decided by the Establishment Branch. Com.Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS and Com.Vijayakumar, AGS, discussed this issue with Shri Saurabh Tyagi, Sr.GM(Estt.) today. It was replied that the file has not come to the Establishment Branch. However, the Sr.GM(Estt.) opined that the exam could be conducted based on the present working strength of the JE cadre.
Farmers’ distress has become very acute in Maharashtra. Farmers committing suicide has become a day to day affair. However, the committing of suicide of a farmer in Buldhana district has become a media attraction. Maharashtra state is going to the polls and the Chief Minister, Fadnavis is doing election campaign in the Eastern Maharashtra. At this juncture, a farmer has committed suicide in Buldhana district, wearing the BJP’s poll T-shirt. Perhaps, the farmer, wants to attract the attention of the ruling BJP bosses to the pathetic condition of the farmers. Hence, he has committed suicide by wearing a BJP’s poll T-shirt.
