Observe “Anti-CAA, NPR and NRC Day” on 23.03.2020.

The CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act), NPR (National Population Register) and NRC (National Register of Citizenship) are against the secular character of the Indian Constitution.

 

  • The spirit of the Indian Constitution is that the citizenship of any person should not be decided based on his / her religion. However, the CAA excludes the migrants of a particular religion, from getting Indian citizenship.

 

  • The NRC (National Register of Citizenship) will be prepared based on the NPR (National Population Register). At the time of preparing NPR, each person should to tell the date and place where his / her parents were born. If these details are not provided, then, that person may be kept in the doubtful citizen’s list.

 

  • Each person may have to give a big amount as bribe to the officials, to ensure that they get citizenship.

 

  • When NRC is finalised in Assam, 19 lakh people lost their citizenship. A Kargil war hero, two MLAs are among those who did not get citizenship. How many crores of people will lose their citizenship, if the NRC is implemented in the whole of India?

 

  • It is not only Muslims, but those who oppose and criticise the government may also not get citizenship.

 

  • The CAA, NPR and NRC divide the people, especially the working masses, based on religion.    

 

23rd March, 2020 is the martyrdom day of freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Raj Guru. The CEC meeting of BSNLEU, has called on the employees to observe an “Anti-CAA, NPR and NRC Day” on 23.03.2020. The CEC has called on the employees to wear demands badge with black ribbon on that day. Lunch hour gate meetings should be organised and the preamble of the Indian Constitution should be read out on that day. All circle and district secretaries are requested to organise this programme very successfully.

After eating 900 mice, cat goes on Haj pilgrimage.

It is known to everyone that Reliance Jio created a very big crisis, not only for BSNL, but for the entire telecom sector, by practicing predatory pricing. Many medium and small sized telecom companies are closed down, because of Jio’s predatory pricing. All the telecom companies, except Jio, have gone into loss. The total debt of the telecom sector is Rs.8 lakh crore. Now, Jio says that a minimum floor price should be fixed for data and voice calls. In reply to a consultation paper floated by the TRAI, the Jio has stated that among 230 countries of the world, data tariffs in India are 50 times lower than the tariffs of major developing / developed countries. The behaviour of Reliance Jio reminds us the proverb, “after eating 900 mice, cat goes on Haj pilgrimage”.

WHO Chief reiterates Corona Virus had natural origin.

The US government has totally failed to contain the spread of Corona Virus. More than 11 lakh people are infected with Corona Virus Disease in the US and 65,000 people have already died. The US is the worst affected country by the Corona Virus Disease. Even many poor countries are managing this disease in a better way. Hence, to save his skin, the US President, Donald Trump, is trying to divert the attention of the US people, by telling that China is responsible for the Corona Virus crisis. The World Health Organisation Director General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, had already categorically stated that, the Corona Virus has originated from animals. However, even recently, Trump has told that, China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology is the origin of the Corona Virus. In reply to this, the Head of Emergencies at World Health Organsation (WHO), Dr. Michael Ryan, has categorically stated that, the Novel Corona Virus is “natural in origin.” Responding to Donald Trump yesterday, Dr. Michael Ryan stated that, the WHO team had listened “again and again” to many scientists, who had looked at the gene sequences of the virus, “and we are assured that this virus is natural in origin”.

Mukesh Ambani’s 5G technology..

In the recently held 43rd Annual General Meeting(AGM) of  Reliance Industries Limited(RIL), Mukesh Ambani announced that, Jio has developed it's own 5G technology. He announced that the “Made-In-India” 5G technology can be deployed within a year’s time, after 5G spectrum is made available.  This announcement has taken the telecom industry experts  by surprise . In this connection, we would  like to furnish the following information also.

 

Last year, when the DoT asked operators to submit their 5G trial proposals, Jio submitted it’s application jointly with Samsung. It is important to note that, Samsung is the supplier of Jio's 4G equipments. 

 

Subsequently, in March 2020, Jio informed the DoT that, it would broaden it’s 5G trial runs with Huawei, Ericsson and Nokia. It did not mention anything about its own 5G technology. 

 

However, now, i.e., in July,2020, Jio has announced that, it has designed and developed it’s own 5G technology. Now, the question is, whether Jio has developed the 5G technology within a period of 3 months, ie., after March, 2020?

 

On the day when the 43rd AGM of RIL took place, wherein Mukesh Ambani made the big-bang announcement on 5G, the price of the shares of RIL fell 2% in the Bombay Stock Exchange. Is it an indication that, the shareholders of RIL did not believe Mukesh Ambani’s announcement on 5G technology?
