Reports about the starting of the two days hunger strike on 21-22 July 2015 by the BSNL-DOT Pensioners, as per the call of the All India BSNL DOT Pensioners Association (AIBDPA) have started reaching the CHQ. The Hunger strike is being organised for settlement of the demands like 78.2% IDA Pension fixation, restoration of Medical Allowance to BSNL retirees, increase of the Medical Allowance to DOT retirees, Pension Revision etc. Thousands of senior citizens are participating in the hunger strike despite their age related problems.
We demand the government and the BSNL Management to settle the issues without further delay. Our Hearty Congratulations to the participants in the Hunger Strike.
