The entire BSNL fraternity is extremely sad to hear the tragic news of the suicide of Com. Ramesh Kumar Sondhiya, Asst. Telecom Technician, Jabalpur on 12th February. He was only 37 years old.  It is understood that he took the extreme step due to non-receipt of salary for the last two and half months and unable to cope up with the stress and financial difficulty. Already 8 BSNL contract workers have committed suicide due to non-receipt of wages for several months. Our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.

We demand the government and BSNL to immediately pay the salaries of the employees and the wages of the contract workers. The authorities are fully responsible for these tragic deaths.
