Red Salute to Com.Jyoti Basu ( 8th July 1914
– 17th January 2010) on his 108th Birth Day !
Com.Jyoti Basu was one of the giants of the political scenery of India. He was the Chief Minister of W.Bengal for long 33 years. His contribution as Chief Minister as well as the charismatic top leader of the CPI(M) and its PBM since its formation in 1964 is legendary.
I had been fortunate to meet him during union conference as also Party Congresses. My request that the W.Bengal government may kindly ensure that all the government telecom services be made through BSNL was well received. The same reply was also given by Com. Manik Sarkar, Chief Minister, Tripura, who was also present.
