AIBDPA/ AGN-JAC/2019 29TH November, 2019
Greetings from AIBDPA.
I am writing this as per the decision of Central Executive Committee Meeting of All India BSNL DOT Pensioners Association held at Guwahati on 24-25, November, 2019.
Our CEC has unanimously decided against seeking legal remedy for Pension Revision of BSNL retirees at present, as we feel that it should be the last option. Further, it is our considered opinion that the government has at no point rejected the demand and we should wait for the post VRS scenario.
Meanwhile, the CEC has decided to wage the following phased programme of agitation to exert pressure on the government, for which we are seeking the cooperation of all the important pensioners organizations to make it a joint struggle. The proposals are subject to modifications, to consider the opinions of all the oraganisations.
- Signature campaign in the memorandum addressed to the Prime Minister seeking his intervention for Pension Revision of BSNL retirees – December,2019.
- Meeting the Parliament Members , irrespective of their political affiliation to muster maximum support, by District wise delegation.—January, 2020
- Mass Hunger Strike at CCA offices- February, 2020.
- Parliament March during the Budget Session of Parliament- March,2020.
It would be better to have a joint meeting of the organizations to give the final shape of the agitation with dates of each programme, preferably in the 3rd week of December,2019. In case, if it is not possible to attend the meeting, your opinion may please be communicated through email.
Awaiting your early positive response and
