BSNLEU wishes a very Happy Mahavir Jayanti to all the comrades.
This is an appeal to all the employees of BSNL, to massively participate in and support AUAB's Twitter Campaign, for the immediate launching of BSNL's 4G service and also for BSNL's Revival.
As per the Revival plan approved by the Union Cabinet, BSNL's 4G service should have been launched by this time. But, unfortunately, due to various reasons best known to BSNL Management and the DoT, BSNL's 4G Launching is getting terribly delayed. The sufferers due to this delay, are the citizens of India, especially the people in the rural areas, where still the internet services have not reached.
Furthermore, the delay is adversely affecting the revenue generation of the BSNL. As the employees of the BSNL, this is our bread and butter issue. Hence, we appeal to you all to massively participate in the Twitter Campaign on 10.08.2020, between 11:00 hrs and 13:00 hrs and to make it a big success.

ड्रामेबाजी पर विश्वास मत कीजिए
06.11.2018 को DoT ने CMD BSNL को पत्र लिखा और स्पष्ट रूप से हमारी प्रमुख मांगों जैसे 3rd पे रिवीजन, BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम का आवंटन और वास्तविक मूल वेतन पर पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन को रिजेक्ट कर दिया। AUAB के लीडर्स ने 13.11.2018 की मीटिंग में यह बात डायरेक्टर (एच आर) के संज्ञान में लाई और पुरजोर तरीके से अपना विरोध व्यक्त किया। परिणामस्वरूप यह मुद्दा डायरेक्टर (एच आर) द्वारा सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम के समक्ष प्रस्तुत किया गया। यह ज्ञात हुआ है कि अगले दिन सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम ने उस अधिकारी को,जिसके हस्ताक्षर से पत्र जारी हुआ था, को तलब किया और उनसे पूछा गया कि बगैर सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम को बताए उन्होंने यह पत्र कैसे जारी कर दिया।
जहां तक हमारा सवाल है, ये सब ड्रामेबाजी है और हम इस तरह की कहानियों पर विश्वास नही कर सकते। ये वही सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम है जो माननीय संचार मंत्री द्वारा दिए गए आश्वासनों पर बगैर कार्यवाही किए आश्वासनों को 8 माह तक दबाए बैठी रही। हम, अब और, इस तरह की कहानी पर विश्वास करने के लिए तैयार नही है। हम अब सीधे सीधे कार्यवाही चाहते हैं। केवल सभी 1.85 लाख कर्मियों की अनिश्चितकालीन हड़ताल ही संचार भवन में बैठे लोगों को सार्थक कार्यवाही के लिए बाध्य कर सकती है। अतः किस्से कहानियों पर विश्वास न करें और अनिश्चितकालीन हड़ताल की सफलता के लिए पूर्ण रूप से तैयारी शुरू करें।
