11th December 2015 is the 41st Death Anniversary of the Revolutionary P and T Leader Com. K.G.Bose and is being observed all over India. Meetings will be held and the great contributions by him remembered.
Com.K.G.Bose is the leader who gave the P&T Unions the correct line to be adopted. He fought against reformism in the union and gave the appropriate guide lines. He was dismissed from service in connection with the leadership role in the 1949 strike and was not taken back. However, he continued in the P&T and Central Govt. employees movement till the last.
He was elected as the Circle Secretary of three unions of NFPTE in W.Bengal in 1954. He was elected as the President of NFPTE in 1970. He also functioned as the president of Postal Class III Union. He was elected as an MLA in W.Bengal. He functioned as a member of the Pay Commission for the state employees of W.Bengal.
His life was full of sacrifices and struggles. Even when he was ill and was in the London Hospital for treatment, his mind was with the workers in India. He died on 11th December 1974 at the comparatively young age of 54.
I have many cherished memories of Com.KG Da, who was always there to advice and guide us. KG Bose Mandiram, Calicut is one of the first union office in honour of him. The BSNLEU building in Delhi is also named after KG Bose.
On his 41st death anniversary, we pay our respects to the great revolutionary who led the great P&T TU movement in its crucial period.
Red Salute to Com. K.G.Bose!
