“BSNL staff expired on duty at Pratapgarh but the management is trying to avoid the responsibility as he was a daily paid worker. Strong resentment is prevailing among the casual contract workers.

Com.Radheshyam Mishra who was working in Rasulha telephone exchange under Pratapgarh district had expired on 24th December in a road accident while he was on duty. He was working in BSNL since DoT, period but it is a great shame for the local Management that, not a single officer was present there to identify the dead body as a BSNL staff as he was a daily paid worker. We condemn the role of the local administration who wants to keep away themselves to play a vital role on the critical situation. Our BSNLCCWF members rushed to the spot and contact the family members. CHQ has advised to lodge an FIR immediately. It is also learnt that the local administration is yet to pay the wages to the worker since 10 months. Our circle union is trying to talk to higher officer of the circles to help the family. Com. Jitlal Mourya, CS, BSNLCCWF, UP East circle, reached to the family members and assured to do the needful at this moment. But still a strong resentment is prevailing among the staff against the management due to the avoiding tendency of the officers. We will try to help the family members with our limitations. “(Courtesy: BSNLCCWF website)
