removal of telecom minister
Accusing the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government of indulging in corruption during
“its last days in office”, the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today demanded Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh to sack Union Communications Minister A Raja for allegedly helping his friend get franchise of state-run BSNL’s
new high-speed internet service.
“The UPA government has perhaps decided to loot the nation in its last days in office.
Reports suggest that the communications minister has helped five companies of his friend Sanjay Kapoor get franchise of BSNL’s
Wi Max (high-speed internet) service,” alleged BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar.
“We demand the prime minister to sack Raja immediately,” he told reporters here.
The BJP spokesperson claimed that out of the six companies short-listed for franchise, five belonged to Kapoor.
“The companies were registered on a single date (November 7, 2008) with same notary,
same auditor, same witnesses, same address and same email id,” he added.
He said if the process of allotment goes ahead, “it will mean giving 20 MHz of spectrum
without any investment and offering free use of BSNL’s assets including its 20,000 offices, 50,000 towers and two million
km of optical fibre cable...This is corruption to the tune of thousands and crores of rupees.”
The BJP also demanded stopping the allotment process.

known to the management why it opposes now ,when it has accepted participation from other unions in the national council all
along with out any question or hesitation".

IN WHICH HE ASKED TO DELINK THE JTOs SELECTED THROUGH 1995 SCREENING TEST.PLEASE DISCUSS AND GIVE FEEDBACK
Shri Kuldeep Goyal
New Delhi – 110001
Subject : Diversion of posts of JTO (T) from DR quota to
35% departmental quota – Orders of Hon’ble High Court of Haryana and Punjab in CWP No. 5608/2007 dated 30.05.2008
Ref. : F. No. 3-9/2007-Pers-IV
would like to draw your kind attention in the above cited reference and subject matter wherein 3500 posts of JTOs of DR quota
diverted vide BSNL CO letters No. 5-4/2001-Pers-IV dated 09.08.2001, 29.08.2001, 21.05.2002, 17.05.2003, 18.05.2004,
20.07.2006 and 26.12.2007 were re-diverted to the DR quota in pursuant to the orders of Hon’ble High Court dated 30.05.2008
in CWP No. 5608/2007 and further diversion of DR quota posts to 35% departmental quota was stopped. To avoid the reversion
of 3500 JTOs promoted through two qualifying examinations held in 1995 and in April 2000, BSNL CO created 3500 supernumerary
posts as per the Circle-wise breakup of posts as a special measure.
this connection, it is submitted that there were two qualifying examinations held in 1995 and in April 2000. The present court
order of Hon’ble High Court of Haryana and Punjab is for the candidates who got qualified in screening test held on
April 23, 2000. The order does not say anything about the candidates qualified in 1995 test. But BSNL
CO is treating both the groups at par and has created supernumerary posts for entire group which is not correct because
the TTAs who qualified JTO qualifying examination in 1995 should not be affected by this court judgment.
would therefore request you to kindly intervene in the matter so that the issue may be looked afresh in view of the court

SPONTANEOUS MASSIVE PROTEST AGAINST ARBITRARY DECISION OFBSNL MANAGEMENT IN ISSUING ORDERS ON MEAGRE ADJUSTABLE
The BSNL Non-Executives all over the country expressed their sharp anger and spontaneous protest
against the very meager advance as also the arbitrary orders issued by BSNL management.While BSNLEU and United Forum demanded
for 50% salary or Rs. 3000/- p.m. whichever ismore as interim relief, the BSNL management offered only two months basic pay
as advance.During discussions, CMD offered 4 months basic pay as advance. BSNLEU did not accept the offer, stating that it
is too meager.But the management arbitrarily issued orders on 30th
April 2009 for payment of adjustable advance of four months basic pay only. The management
should never have issued such an order, which is under discussion with the recognized union.Hence, the protest walk-out from
duty/office and massive hunger strike at Corporate office on 4th May 2009 were organized within a very short time.
CHQ congratulates the entire workers for organizing the action programmes with
participation ofmaximum workers.Whether to accept the adjustable advance or not?Some
comrades have requested us to give a call for boycott of the advance, since it is verymeager and decision is arbitrarily taken.
We understand and appreciate the feelings of these comrades. The Central Secretariat after detailed
discussion has decided to call upon the workers to take the advance and at the same time continue our struggle. Our
attention should not be diverted from the prime target and division amongst workers should not be allowed to take place. Our
maximum efforts now should be to make the two days strike on 19th and 20th May 2009 a resounding success.
Request to other Unions.
CHQ, as the representative union, has already requested all other Unions
(other than the unionsin United Forum, which have already given strike notice) to join strike action on 19-20 May 2009 on
common interest. We have also requested the Executives Associations to extend their solidarity.
• Let us make all preparation for a successful
• Contact each and every worker and explain.
• Hold GB/executive committee meetings.
We March Towards
strike ,Towards victory
