Change of Minister brings change in attitude.

The AUAB has organised many struggles in the recent years, on the issues related to the revival of BSNL. This includes the 3 day strike in February, 2019. At the same time, the AUAB has used every opportunity to negotiate with the DoT and the Ministers. However, it was unfortunate that, we could not meet the Minister for the past 3 years or so and put our views across the table. Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, who had been the Communications Minister, had taken an unreasonable stand of not meeting the trade unions. He had openly told this to the senior MPs who requested him to meet and discuss the issues with the trade unions. However, he is gone now and new Ministers have taken over. The new Minister of State for Communications, Shri Devusinh Chauhan has met the unions and associations on 24.07.2021, without any hesitation. Whether to accept, or not to accept, what the trade unions say, is ultimately the decision of the Minister and the government. But, in a Democratic country, it is the duty of the government and it's ministers, to at least meet the trade unions and listen to what they say.

स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना को लागू करने के बारे में प्रबंधन, यूनियनों और संगठनों और न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस - New India Assurance के प्रतिनिधियों के  बीच बैठक हुई।

 

BSNLEU ने प्रबंधन से मांग उठाई थी कि इच्छुक बीएसएनएल कर्मचारियों के लिए स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना लागू की जाए। इसके आधार पर प्रबंधन ने त्वरित कार्रवाई की है और चिकित्सा बीमा योजना - Medical Insurance Scheme का क्रियान्वयन अंतिम चरण में है। इस संबंध में आज कोर्पोरेट ओफिस में बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन, मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियनों और संघों और न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस - New India Assurance के प्रतिनिधियों के  बीच एक बैठक आयोजित की गई थी। कॉम.पी.अभिमन्यु, जनरल सेक्रेटरी ने इस बैठक में भाग लिया और निम्नलिखित दो मांगें उठाईं।

 

(1) मातृत्व ( Maternity ) सुविधा को इस बीमा योजना में शामिल किया जाना चाहिए।

 

(2) 5 लाख रुपये की पॉलिसी के लिए प्रीमियम राशि 6,100 रुपये + 18% जीएसटी के रूप में तय की गई है जो 7,198 रुपये होगी। इस राशि को कम किया जाना चाहिए।

 

जहां तक मातृत्व ( Maternity ) सुविधा सहित योजना लागू लेने का प्रश्न है, न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस - New India Assurance के प्रतिनिधि ने बताया कि इसके परिणामस्वरूप सभी पॉलिसी धारकों के लिए प्रीमियम में 12% से 15% की वृद्धि होगी।

 

BSNLEU द्वारा लंबे समय तक आग्रह के बाद न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस -New India Assurance के प्रतिनिधि ने प्रीमियम राशि को कम करने और बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन को वापस रिपोर्ट करने की मांग पर कंपनी से परामर्श करने पर सहमति व्यक्त की है ।

क्लस्टर आधारित आउटसोर्सिंग से खर्च बढ़ा है और सेवा की गुणवत्ता खराब हुई है : BSNLEU ने सीएमडी बीएसएनएल को पत्र लिखकर गहन समीक्षा की मांग की है।

 

BSNLEU लंबे समय से प्रबंधन को बता रहा है कि क्लस्टर आधारित आउटसोर्सिंग प्रणाली से खर्च में तेजी से वृद्धि हुई है, जबकि सेवा की गुणवत्ता में भारी गिरावट आई है । इसके अलावा आउटसोर्सिंग के बाद लैंडलाइन और ब्रॉडबैंड कनेक्शन बड़े पैमाने पर बंद हो रहे है। इसलिए, एक बार फिर BSNLEU ने सीएमडी बीएसएनएल को तथ्य और आंकड़ों के साथ पत्र लिखकर यह कहा है कि क्लस्टर आधारित आउटसोर्सिंग प्रणाली पूरी तरह से विफल है और इस आउटसोर्सिंग प्रणाली की गहन समीक्षा की जानी चाहिए ।

Why you are keeping the colonial Sedition Law used against Mahatma Gandhi and Bal Gangadhar Tilak? Supreme Court questions the Government.

The British Imperialists used the Sedition Law to punish freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi and Bal Gangadhar Tilak. Why the Government is still using this Sedition Law to suppress voices of dissent? A Bench consisting of Justice N.V. Ramana, Justice A.S. Bopanna and Justice Hrishikesh Roy has raised this question to the Central Government. For the last 75 years after independence, this Sedition Law has been misused by various governments to suppress the voices of dissent. According to the NCRB, 559 persons were arrested under the Sedition Law between 2014 and 2019. However, only 10 of them were convicted. This shows that, the governments arrest citizens, by misusing the Sedition Law. This misuse of the Sedition Law, by the government is being questioned by the Supreme Court now.
