With extreme shock and sorrow, it is intimated that Com. H.L.Makkar, senior leader of BSNLEU, former Vice-President of E.III (N) and President of NTR Circle passed away on 05-10-2016 at Delhi. He was admitted to the hospital a few days back. He was 76 years.

Com.H.L.Makkar was the leader who inspired the NTR workers to join enmasse to the E.III(N)Union. His influence and vibrant leadership made the NTR circle a stronghold for the BSNLEU. The fact that he was the President of the BSNLEU NTR Circle union for more than 15 years itself shows the respect given to him by the workers.

Com.Makkar was a very close friend of mine. He gave all support to the CHQ during the difficult and critical days of 1990s. He was an excellent orator and could convince all with his effective speech. He was respected by the Management also.

His death is a big loss to BSNLEU and to all the BSNL workers.

I convey my heart felt condolences to the bereaved family, friends and comrades!
