INDIA: Follow the GREAT fight of the P&P



In view of the denial of permission to continue the Dharna on 25th August, 2023, Joint Forum of BSNL MTNL Pensioners  Associations has planned to hold Protest Demonstration before Sanchar Bhawan at 11.30am. Plenty of Police were deployed to prevent the demonstration and some of our comrades from Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Kerala etc who reached earlier were removed in the police vehicle to Jantar Mantar. The leaders reached at the spot at 11.30am had a tough time to deal with the police. But they started shouting slogans and all the comrades joined together and staged a powerful demonstration for 15 minutes resisting the police to remove them to the police vehicle. Then the police informed that Joint Forum can continue the Dharna at Jantar Mantar. Thereafter hundreds of pensioners moved to Jantar Mantar in a procession.

Comrades V A N Namboodiri, K G Jayaraj, G L Jogi, H F Chaudhari, M K Mudgal, D D Mistri and M R Das addressed hundreds of Comrades who came from almost all parts of the country with great commitment and determination to fight for the genuine cause. All the speakers delivered spirited and encouraging speeches and declared that Joint Forum will continue the fight until pension revision is achieved.

Thereafter the police took the leaders in a vehicle to Sanchar Bhawan and the Joint Secretary received the memorandum.
