BSNL is passing through a difficult period. It is in loss, its market share has gone down to below 9% and its subscribers are surrendering land lines. A herculean effort is required to ring it back to normal. The Forum, which is the umbrella organisation of all the unions and associations is on a campaign trail to get the support of the people for its revival. The 2.5 lakh workers are fully committed to the revival of BSNL.

In this context, it is only appropriate that a member of the staff side /union / association should be included in the Director Board. Workers’ Participation should not only be a slogan, but is also to be practised.
