It is 8 years since Com. Harkishan Singh Surjeet, former General Secretary of CPI(M) and freedom fighter, passed away on 1st August 2008. He was in the forefront of the freedom struggle from his student days and had to face imprisonment many times.
The Central Government employees will remember him specially, since his pressure on the then Central government, which was supported by the Left Parties, made the government to grant 40% fitment instead of 20%, which the V CPC has recommended.
He was always there to guide and advice the telecom employees movement and his support during the trying period of 1991-2000 when democracy was being butchered by the P&T administration and the reformist leadership of NFTE.
Our Red Salute to Com. Surjeet on his 8th death anniversary!
