20th August 2013, is the second death anniversary of Com. M.K.Pandhe, the veteran Communist and the beloved leader of the working class.
A leader of the AITUC and later as the leader of the CITU after its formation for many decades, Com. Pandhe was in the forefront of the struggles of the workers. He functioned as the General Secretary and later as President of the CITU.
He was closely connected with the BSNLEU, BSNLCCWF as also AIBDPA since their formation in the first decade of the 21st century. He was guide and advisor to these organisations. We are proud to state that all these three organisations are the majority organisations in their respective sectors.
Comrade Pandhe was one of the architects of the united movement of the Central Trade Unions, which has now consolidated and joint struggles organised on the demands of the workers including the 48 hours strike on 20-21 February 2013, participated by about 12 crore workers.
On his second death anniversary, I pay my respectful homage!
Red salute to Comrade M.K.Pandhe!
