Today, 27th November 2016, I was invited to inaugurate the All India Postal and RMS Pensioners Association Delhi Circle Conference, which was being held at R.K.Puram Sector 6, Community Hall, Delhi. About 150 pensioners were present. Com. Rajendra Prasad, Circle President presided. Com.Deep Chand,Circle Secretary welcomed all and garlanded and presented shawl to all the guests and speakers.
The house stood in silence for one minute paying homage to the Martyrs, Cuban Revolutionary leader Com. Fidel Castro who passed away yesterday and also Com. Des Raj, former General Secretary, P.IV Union, who left us a few weeks back.
In my inaugural speech, I mentioned about the great Cuban Revolution, the pivotal role played by Castro as also the priority given to the pensioners and children in the socialist countries. I also spoke about VII CPC recommendations, 15th December Parliament March by CG Employees, demonetisation and the misery to the people, the major demands of the pensioners etc.
Coms. Iswar Dabas, Laxmi Narayan, H.L.Siddhu and other leaders addressed the Conference. I returned before the conclusion of the conference since I had to attend some other urgent work.
It was a pleasure to meet many senior leaders of the Postal and RMS movement, who are now active in the Pensioners’ movement, AIPRPA. It was a pleasant day. Thanks to Comrades Rajender Prasad and Deep Chand.
