M.S.Dhoni, who won two World Cups for India retires - BSNLEU salutes the hero..

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the dynamic cricketer who took Indian cricket team to new heights, has announced his retirement from International Cricket. Under the stewardship of this "captain cool", India has won two World Cups. M.S. Dhoni’s retirement is unavoidable, since he is aged 39 now. However, the manner in which this great player retired without any send off, is greatly disappointing. 

 

M.S. Dhoni played last in the World Cup semifinal match, held in July, 2019. Thereafter, M.S. Dhoni was sidelined. He was not given any chance to play thereafter. What is the reason? 

 

Around July, 2019, the campaign for the Jharkhand State Assembly Election started getting heated up. The BJP, that was ruling the state had become unpopular and did not have any hope to win the election. Hence, BJP wanted to rope in MS Dhoni, “the son of the soil” of Jharkhand, to win the election. They tried in many ways to pursuade M.S. Dhoni to campaign in favour of BJP in the Jharkhand election.

 

The Deccan Chronicle dated 07.07.2019 reported that, the BJP President, Amit Shah, together with Minister, Piyush Goyal, BJP’s National General Secretary, Saroj Pandey and BJP’s Delhi President, Manoj Tiwari, met M.S. Dhoni at his residence. It was obviously to convince M.S. Dhoni to campaign for BJP in the Jharkhand election.

 

In October, 2019, Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, was appointed as the Secretary of the BCCI. Even thereafter, M.S. Dhoni did not agree to use his hard-won reputation in the cricket world, to be exploited by the BJP, to win the Jharkhand assembly election. Ultimately, BJP lost the election and was thrown out of power.

 

This is the reason why the greatest Captain of Indian cricket, M.S. Dhoni has been ignored and is not given a deserving send-off. However, the Indian people will remain ever grateful to this great player and captain, for electrifying the Indian Cricket team.

BSNLEU urges upon the GM (Restg.) to immediately release the minutes of the Designations Committee meeting held on 26.09.2017.

A meeting of the Designations Committee was held on 26.09.2017, wherein agreement was reached between the Management and the Staff Side, with regards to the new designations of the left out Non-Executive cadres. However, when the draft minutes of the meeting was released, a clause was inserted in that, by the Management Side, stating that duties and responsibilities of the Non-Executives would change, due to change in designations. This was objected to by Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS and he declined to sign the draft minutes. Citing this as a reason, the Management Side has not released the minutes so far. BSNLEU has given a complaint to the Director (HR) that the Management Side was involved in an unethical practice of manipulating the minutes, and was inserting issues which were actually not discussed in the meeting and also not accepted to by the Staff Side. However, so far no action has been taken on this issue and the final minutes of the meeting was not yet released. As a result of this, the Change of Designations agreed to in the meeting held on 26.09.2017, are yet to be implemented. Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS and Com. Animesh Mitra, Vice President (CHQ), met Shri Ashutosh Gupta, GM (Restg.), yesterday, and expressed the extreme unhappiness of BSNLEU on the undue delay in releasing the “corrected” minutes of the meeting. The GM (Restg.) fully agreed with the Union representatives and assured that needful action would be taken to release the “corrected” minutes within a week’s time.

Dharna programme with social distancing is to be organised on 26.06.2020.

The Central Secretariat meeting of BSNLEU held today, has decided to organise dharna programme, with social distancing, on 26.06.2020, on the following issues: -

 

  1. Delay in rolling out BSNL’s 4G service.

The Central Government announced a revival plan for BSNL, on 23.10.2019. As per the plan, 79,000 employees have been retrenched under VRS. Except the VRS, other steps announced by the government, for the revival of BSNL, have not been implemented. Most importantly, BSNL has not rolled out it’s 4G service. Conspiracy has been hatched, to stop BSNL’s 4G service.  

 

  1. Non-settlement of issues by BSNL Management.

The BSNL Management is insensitive to the sufferings of the employees. Salary of the employees is not being paid on time. Employees are not getting cashless treatment even during this COVId-19 crisis. Existing medical facilities are also being taken away. Employees are suffering due to the non-remittance of deductions on account of PLI premium and society dues. Contract workers are not paid wages for one year and they are being massively retrenched. Implementation of GTI (Group Term Insurance) and relaxation to JTO LICE are being inordinately delayed. In short, none of the issues of the Non-Executives, is being settled by the BSNL Management. The Management is remaining totally insensitive to the sufferings of the employees. 

 

In view of the above situation, the Central Secretariat decided to organise dharna programme, with social distancing, on 26.06.2020. The meeting decided that in view of the COVID-19, only 10 to 15 comrades should participate in the dharna in big stations. In all other places, only 5 comrades should participate. Display of placards and media coverage should be compulsorily arranged.
