Com. K.G.Bose was arrested, jailed and dismissed from service in connection with the proposed strike of 1949 and was never reinstated. But he continued his service to the union. He was elected as the President of NFPTE in 1970 at the Vijayawada Federal Council to re-elected next year at Calcutta Federal Council. Already he has been elected as the Circle Secretary of Postal Employees Union Class III and Telecom Employees Union Class III of W.Bengal.
