At present BSNL is loss making as per the audited reports etc. How it was made loss-making is known to the workers.The central government and the DOT want it to be sold as in the case of VSNL, but it is not possible due to the very strong unions/associations in BSNL.
The BSNL workers are going on strike demanding Pay revision, Pension revision and other demands. The demands include strengthening of BSNL also. The strike has to be made completely successful, so that the government is compelled to discuss and settle the issues.
