We are glad to know that Communications Minister, Shri Ravi Shanker Prasad discussed with the Postal Federations their demands of strike and on the assurances of the Minister the strike from 6th May 2015 has been deferred.

But the same Minister could not find time to discuss the strike issues of the BSNL Employees, which resulted in successful Two Days Strike on 21-22 April 2015.

Is it because Postal is a Government Department and BSNL is a PSU? Or is it because the Secretary Posts took initiative for a meeting and the Secretary DOT did not?

Or is it that the BSNL is not a priority for the government, though the Minister had several times stated  that he will not allow BSNL to die?

Who will answer these questions?
