It is known to the entire world that, the BJP governments at the centre and in the states are using brutal force against the citizens who are peacefully protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), and the National Register of Citizens (NRC). Violence by any protester cannot be allowed. At the same time, action should be taken against them as per the law of the land. However, in states like Uttar Pradesh and Assam, where the BJP is the ruling party, protesters are being mercilessly shot down. The BJP President of West Bengal, Dilip Gosh, has taken pride in stating that the BJP governments have shot down the protesters like dogs. The mindset of the ruling BJP is well revealed by Dilip Gosh, who is a senior leader of that party.

BSNLEU has been consistently demanding relaxation in the qualifying marks for the candidates of JE LICE 50% exam held on 28.01.2018, in view of the poor results. BSNLEU demanded that the Management should give relaxation in qualifying marks, as was given for the DR TTA exam held in 2008. An order was issued on 01.06.2009 by the Corporate Office, granting the relaxation of 10% marks for each part and 10% marks for the aggregate. Our demand is that, when relaxation was given for DR TTA exam in 2008, similar relaxation should be given to the candidates of the JE LICE held on 28.01.2018 also. This issue was prominently discussed in the meeting held with the CMD BSNL on 10-07-2018. BSNLEU told the CMD BSNL that 1800 candidates appeared the JE LICE for 9185 vacancies, but only 111 candidates got qualified. The CMD BSNL responded positively to our demand and assured to do the needful. Thereafter, BSNLEU continuously followed up the issue with the Director (HR) and the GM(Rectt.). Finally, the Management has accepted our demand. The revised results will be announced soon. We express our sincere thanks to the Management for settlement of our just demand.

Com.Anand Narayan Singh, JTO, is the District Secretary, BSNLEU, Vadodara District. He is also the All India Vice-President of BSNLEU. He has been vindictively transferred from Vadodara district to Amreli district, by the Gujarat circle administration. This is in total violation of the Corporate Office orders on immunity from transfers, granted to the District Secretary of the Recognised Union. Undoubtedly, this order was issued only to harass Com. Anand Narayan Singh. CHQ took up the issue seriously with the Corporate Management. As a result of this, the transfer order of Com.Anand Narayan Singh, has now been cancelled. We heartily thank Shri A.M. Gupta, Sr.GM(SR), Corporate Office, for taking prompt action on this matter.
