All Circles to hold one day hunger strike at Circle HQs on 31st July, 2014 in solidarity and support of our Kerala Comrades.

Two days huger fast commencing from 1000 Hrs on 31st July by CHQ office bearers and others at BSNL CO in solidarity and support of our Kerala Comrades who are on hunger strike since 25.06.2014 to protect Kerala Circle from disaster and to protest against continuing indiscriminate victimization of members of SNEA(I)/Kerala by CGM instead of resolving the issues.

Our Kerala comrades are struggling for the last two months to protect the good work culture/ the good monitoring mechanisms put in place, against the harassment and humiliation by the CGMT, to fight against the alleged corrupt activities of CGMT, to continue the growth oriented activities, demanding manpower, material and money to maintain the network, against rationalization of posts without following the staffing norms and posts sanctioned by BSNLCO, reducing Executives from high revenue earning areas like Transmission mtce/NIB/ Marketing /Sales /BB /NOC etc, against the move not to go for 2G expansion further, “rotational transfer” instead of “need based transfers” even from unpopular and shortage areas etc.

Instead of resolving the issues and focusing on the growth of the Circle as previous CGMTs done, Sri MSS Rao who is looking after the charge of CGM is unleashed series of vindictive actions and victimization by issuing dies-non to more than 1300 Executives in the Circle, charge sheets under Rule 36 for participating in the hunger strike, transfer of office bearers, show cause notices, etc etc. His ulterior motive to indulge in corrupt practices was exposed by the Circle Association which is the root cause for these actions. He didnot even spared  the  GMs/ DGMs. He stooped to such a level to offer lolly pop to some other section of Executives for garnering their support which we never heard in the history of trade union movement, against trade union ethics.

Beloved and untiring heroes of Kerala Circle- your incredible determination and valour has left us all awestruck and stunned. We are amazed at the depths of your strength, your conviction, your undying spirit and legitimacy of your heroic struggle to expose and defeat nepotism and autocratic functioning so as to safeguard values and mechanisms that you hold so dear and close to your chest and which have undoubtedly contributed towards spectacular growth of Kerala Circle.

Dearest Comrades we are conveying you this message on behalf of each and every Comrade of our Association throughout the Country and the message is loud and clear - that each one of us will stand solidly with you to defeat ruthless   victimization let loose by CGM/Kerala and which you have been enduring and taking on your shoulders for the last about two months, with toughest and extraordinarily formidable courage, hitherto unseen and unheard off. Beloved Comrades, we have just no words to reciprocate your valour. The message is, yes, each one of us will stand with you like a rock and shed every drop of his blood to defeat wrath let loose by CGM whose rationality and reason is clouded by extraneous considerations, no matter what happens in the process to the model circle of growth of BSNL of which everyone in BSNL is proud of.
When the struggle is for a cause and has total legitimacy, victimization is an act of desperation and is resorted to by those who have no interest in growth of the Organization and deliberately do not visualize the long term, grave and irreversible implications of victimization on growth and development, and that too of a highly fertile circle like Kerala. The issue of transfer and posting is a corollary of tough stand taken by us to strongly oppose reopening of some critical policy decisions to safeguard the legitimate interests of Kerala Circle. That those critical issues are being sidetracked and the issue is being projected as one of transfers is baseless and will not stand scrutiny. Our timely intervention and opposition towards certain arbitrary decisions to reopen some settled issues has undoubtedly resulted in mass scale transfers in contravention of transfer policy. The genesis of our struggle is basically our tough stand on not allowing compromising legitimate interests of BSNL. Top management of BSNL has to understand this basic fact and act.
Comrades, CGM has victimized hundreds and hundreds of our comrades so far. Let him victimize thousands and thousands but that will not deter our caravan from marching ahead. Let CGM continue ruthless victimization, our march will continue and our determination and conviction to face ruthless victimization and continue our march will get more resolute. That is what the history of struggle and that too of a democratic and legitimate struggle tells us. Repressive measures have never, never been able to silence just and legitimate struggle of workers committed to safeguard the interests of their place of bread and butter. Go ahead fearlessly and continue your march fearlessly in the face of ruthless victimization.
