The lesson that the Corona Virus teaches us.

During the past two / three decades, we have been witnessing what was happening in the health-care sector. The successive governments had systematically weakened the government hospitals and the government primary health centres, by cutting down the fund allotments. At the same time, private hospitals have come up in a big way. They were looting the people mercilessly. Their colourful advertisements were occupying our TV screens. But now, all of a sudden, we realise that only the government hospitals are coming to the rescue of the people, to fight the Corona Virus menace. In many places, the government is converting hotels and colleges into temporary hospitals. Reports say that, in Europe, where the Corona Virus disease is at it’s peak, the entire health care sector has been taken over by the government, at least temporarily. All these developments indicate that, in the days to come, the government health-care system has got a crucial role to play and hence, it should be strengthened. This is the lesson that the Corona Virus teaches us.

Relief package announced by Nirmala Sitharaman is too small and makes us look like pygmies, compared to the US..

Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitaraman has announced a relief package of Rs.1.7 lakh crore, to tackle the crisis created by COVID-19. Reputed Indian economist, Swaminathan S. Anklesaria Aiyer, who is also a consultant of the World Bank, has stated that the relief package announced by the Finance Minister is too small and it makes us look like pygmies, compared to the relief package announced by the US government. President, Trump of the US, has announced a $2 trillion relief package to fight the crisis created by the Corona Virus. $2 trillion is 10% of the US's GDP. Whereas, the Rs.1.7 lakh crore, announced by Indian Finance Minister, comes to only 0.5% of the Indian GDP. He has compared the relief package as "a few crumbs from the Finance Minister’s table". The economist has stated that this is a “once in a century” crisis and the Indian government should spend more to tackle it.

CHQ calls upon the circle and district unions to raise "Contract Workers Relief Fund".

All are aware that the contract workers in BSNL are not paid wages for more than 10 months now. BSNLEU and BSNLCCWF are continuously pressurising the Corporate Management to release funds, for the payment of wage arrears of the contract workers. However, it has not materialised. Under these circumstances, a 21 day lock-down has been imposed by the government to stop the spread of Corona Virus. This lock-down has further increased the sufferings of the contract workers many folds. Immediate humanitarian help to the contract workers has become very essential. Hence, the CHQ of BSNLEU, in consultation with the circle secretaries and central office bearers, has decided to collect "Contract Workers Relief Fund" to help the contract workers. Circle, district and branch secretaries of BSNLEU are requested to immediately swing into action and collect donations from our members, as well as from well-wishers including retired employees and officers. In view of the lock-down, the donation can be collected by contacting everyone over telephone and getting the commitment for the donation. CHQ requests all the circle secretaries to take the initiative to collect the donations, by coordinating with the Central Office bearers, District secretaries and others. CHQ requests all the comrades to act on a war-foot basis and to swiftly collect the funds. Further guidelines in this regard, will be issued by the CHQ.
