The PMO has asked Secretary, Telecommunications for the status on the report of the NITI Ayog recommendation to close / transfer to states of BSNL, the telecom PSU. If Modi government thinks that BSNL is for sale, it is completely mistaken. The 2.1 lakh BSNL employees, one lakh contract workers, more than one lakh BSNL retirees and crores of common people of this country will join together to put an end to this brutal attack. The people know that any closure of BSNL will result in at least 10 times increase in the call / data charges by the private companies as in other countries where the telecom sector is handed over to the private companies.

Maximum campaign amongst the people is required to defend BSNL. It is to be remembered that the present attack is being made when BSNL has improved its services and is making operational profit with the full co-ordination of BSNL Management and the workers.
