The Narendra Modi government has already taken decision to privatise the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL), which is a huge profit earning PSU. Absolutely there is no need or justification to privatise it. Prior to 1971, BPCL was a multinational oil company. After the 1971 Indo- Pakistan war, this company was nationalised by the then Prime Minister, Smt. Indira Gandhi, because the Company refused to fuel Indian Air force's fighter jets, during India's war with Pakistan. It is unfortunate that the Modi government is reversing the history today and wants to hand over this Public Sector oil behemoth to some Indian or multinational corporates. This act of the government to privatise BPCL is nothing but anti- national. Those who preach about "Nationalism" from roof tops should make a self introspection and think how India's "national interests" are being compromised by the Narendra Modi government. The Central Trade Unions have called for a one day General Strike on 8th January, 2020, against the privatisation of the Public Sector by the Modi government. BSNLEU has also decided to join this General Strike. We call upon the BSNL employees to join this General Strike enmasse. If we remain as silent spectators any more, days will not be far away, when BSNL will also be handed over to Ambani or Adani.
