Respected Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji,
In your own constituency Varanasi and in most districts of U. P. where your party runs the Government, BSNL contract workers are being paid a monthly wage of Rs. 1500 to Rs. 2000 only, whereas the minimum wage prescribed by the central government is Rs. 10,500. But the most pitiful fact is that they have not been paid even that meagre amount for the last one year, though they continue to work. Their families are starving for months. Continuous representations, including by the unions, did not achieve any fruitful result.
I sent your kind self a letter months back and I got acknowledgment also, but the miserable condition continues.
I would request your kind self once again to urgently look in to the matter and ensure justice to them by getting full wages paid to them with arrears for the whole period.
V. A. N. Namboodiri
President, BSNL Casual and Contract Workers Federation, at Kozhikode -673011.
