BSNLEU has already informed through website that settlement of this issue is lying pending with the DoT for a very long time, because BSNL has not provided the requisite inputs to the DoT. On hearing BSNLEU’s complaint, the Director (HR) seriously instructed the new GM (Estt.) to gather the requisite inputs from the circles and to send the same without delay to the DoT.
Holi is the festival of colours. Many colours come together and form a beautiful rainbow.

Our government and it’s ministers are boasting that India is the fastest growing economy in the world. However, a vast section of the Indian people continue to reel under poverty, hunger, unemployment, etc., etc. Report after report are saying that crores of Indian children are malnutritioned and are stunted (children not with the normal height for their age). Once again The New Global Nutrition Report 2018 has stated that 46.6 million stunted children are living in India. This is 1/3 of the population of stunted children in the world.

The medicine Hydroxichloroquine is being most talked about now. The US President, Donald Trump, has announced that Hydroxichloroquine cures the Corona Virus Disease. Under these circumstances, the Government of India has placed order for production of Hydroxichloroquine. However, the order has been given to two private companies. But the government has not given order to the Public Sector Bengal Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (BCPL). It is very important to note that Bengal Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd., which was established by Acharya Prafulla Chandra Roy, first produced Quinine in India. Even when the human beings are facing the biggest crisis, created by Corona Virus, the government is not giving up it’s pro-private and anti-PSU Policy.
