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.
