Throughout the nation, BSNL employees, as per the call of BSNL unions and associations, organized mighty demonstrations in front of their offices/exchanges protesting against the decision of the government to form a separate Tower Company by hiving away the 64,000 towers of the BSNL. This is part of the government conspiracy to disable and weaken BSNL and prepare for disinvestment or strategic sale as recommended by NITI Ayog.

The union leaders demanded the government to stop the process of forming the separate Tower Company failing which further united struggles will be organised. They said that they will never allow the government to dismember BSNL.
