Many members in the Parliament complained about the services of the BSNL and MTNL. Many others joined them. They were stating their experiences.

BSNL, MTNL Management and employees have to understand the feelings of the Members of Parliament about the service. A serious introspection is required both on the part of the management and the workers.

It is true that the anti-PSU, anti-BSNL, Anti-MTNL policy of both the UPA and NDA governments are the root cause of the present unhappy situation. They have systematically weakened the telecom PSUs and supported the private companies. All obstructions were made by the government in procuring the required equipment, the funds of the BSNL were gradually grabbed by the government on one plea or another, did not give what is due to BSNL and had made the BSNL a loss making company. The totally inefficient Management has added to the problems of BSNL. A top management which does not belong to BSNL is in charge, which does not have any stake in the company.

But the workers and their organisations can not sit idle, stating that the government and the management are the culprits and creators of the present chaos. Their duty is to explain  the present situation and change it for the better, for a better service to the people.

It is, because of this responsibility,  that the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations has decided to organise a massive campaign among the public to inform them what has happened in BSNL, What is happening now and what is to be done to improve the situation. In preparation for the Indefinite Strike from 3rd February 2015, the Forum has decided to meet the MPs and seek their help in pressurising the government to support BSNL for revival. There should be maximum campaign among the public also. At the same time, a campaign should be organised among the workers themselves to provide a better service, despite all constraints.

The meeting of the Forum being held on 5th December will plan the campaign and organising the programme   of action already decided. Each and every worker should be part of this massive campaign and action.
