Red Salute to the valiant fighters of 1946 and 1960 Central Employees Strikes!


Today, 11th July 2024, is the 78th Anniversary of the 1946 P & T strike, which is also considered as part of the Independent Struggle and also the 64th Anniversary of 5 days strike of Central government employees strike in 1960 against which the entire cruel machinery of the government was used to suppress the same.

While the British govt was compelled to negotiate and agree for all the demands raised in the 1946 strike, the govt of free India dealt the 1960 Strike as a political strike and suppressed it using the army and all draconian rules, arresting thousands of leaders and workers as also dismissing tens of thousands. 17 comrades became Martyrs in that strike being shot down, crushed under train, beaten up etc.

Workers can not be kept silent for long. Another histric strike was organised on 19th September 1968 on the same demands as in 1960.

No strike is in vain. It is through such heroic strikes that workers have achieved their rightful demands.

Red Salute to the Martyrs who laid down their valuable lives in these struggles! Workers will continue their struggles and move forward in the route shown by them.

08th July, 2024.

A virtual meeting of the Joint Forum, as notified, was held on 08-07–2024. The following representaives participated in the meeting.

AIBDPA : V A N Namboodiri ( Advisor ) M R Das( President ) K G Jayaraj ( General Secretary

)BDPA(I): Thomas John ( President ) D D Mistry ( General Secretary ) M R Vasisht ( AGS)

AICGPA HQ PUNE : H F Chaudhari ( General Secretary ) K Raja ( AGS).

The meeting started at 4PM under the presidenship of Com. D D Mistry. Com. K. G. Jayaraj, Convenor welcomed all and initiated the discussion on the agenda items. The Demands Day on 02-07-2024 was a resounding success and there had been unprecedented participation throughout the country including riot sticken Manipur. He also reported the unfortunate indifference of Com. G. L. Jogi, General Secretary, SNPWA who is reported to have told some of his Circle Secretaries that SNPWA is not part of the Joint Forum. Repeated efforts to contact him over phone failed due to non-response. Com. D D Mistry also tried to contact him but got the same result. However SNPWA comrades have also participated in some circles like Maharashtra, Telengana, Chennai Telephones, Assam etc. MTNL organisations did not participate

Thereafter all the leaders participated in the discussion and gave valuable suggestions. It was generally felt that Com. G. L. Jogi may have his own reasons and we should continue the efforts to aasociate him with the Joint Forum. So also the MTNL organizations.

The meeting finally took the following decisions.

1. CCA Office March at all the Circle on 27-08-2024

.2. Chalo Delhi – Dharna at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on 12-11-2024.

It was decided to participate 1000 pensioners and the quota was allocated, AIBDPA -750, BDPA(I)-200, AICGPA HQ PUNE -50.

PENSION REVISION-MASSIVE RESPONSE FOR DEMANDS DAY CALLED BY JOINT FORUM OF BSNL/MTNL PENSIONERS ASSOCIATIONS.

The call of the Joint Forum of BSNL/MTNL Pensioners Associations to observe Demands Day on 02-07-2024 by holding demonstration at all levels and submission of memorandum addressed to the Hon’ble Minister of Communications and Secretary, DoT through respective CGMs and GMs have been implemented with huge participation of pensioners throughout the country.

The only demand put forward was Pension Revision with 15% fitment from 01-01-2017, delinking wage revsion has become a burning issue of BSNL/MTNL pensioners due to the neglect and apathy by the government and the DoT bureaucracy for the last 90 months. Therefore they have utilized the opportunity to express their strong protest , anguish and resentment braving inclement weather including heavy rain in many parts of the country. On behalf of the Joint Forum , we salute and congratulate all the participants.

Of course, the Demands Day is the first programme and the Joint Forum will meet shortly and decide the dates of the second and third phase, CCA Office March and Chalo Delhi. Some of the photos received are appended below;
