[18.01.2018]Date of the March to Sanchar Bhawan is 23.02.2018.
The original date for the March to Sanchar Bhawan was fixed as 28-02-2018. Subsequently, it is changed to 23-02-2018, in view of the Holi festival. This is already intimated through our website updating. Since the notice for the agitation was prepared before the change of date and many General Secretaries had already signed it. That is why date of the March to Sanchar Bhawan is mentioned as 28-02-2018 in the notice. Necessary correction in this regard has already been made. March to Sanchar Bhawan will be held only on 23-02-2018. Circle Secretaries are requested to immediately inform CHQ, the number of comrades coming from each circle.
[18.01.2018]Prime Minister Narendra Modi should keep in mind that Israel is a country which does not respect the United Nations.
The Israel Prime Minister, Netanyahu has come to India. The Narendra Modi government is making a very big “pomp and show” for this visit. In reality, Israel is a rogue state, which has made aggressions and has occupied Palestinian lands. It is not showing any respect to a number of resolutions passed in the United Nations General Assembly, with overwhelming majority. Due to this reason, up to certain point of time, Israel was treated as an ‘untouchable’ by most of the nations of the world. However, due to the continuous pressure of the United States, many countries have started treating Israel with respect now. The UPA government under the Congress party, normalised India’s ties with Israel. After Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister, India has gone very close to Israel. In this process, Israel’s arms producing corporates are the biggest gainers. Reports say that 41% of Israel’s arms exports are being made to India. Even during the present visit of Netanyahu, very big deals on arms, are going to be clinched. This is not good for the sovereignty of our country. It is a tragedy that, the ‘pseudo-patriots’ who raise a very big hue and cry about China, are silent about India’s undesirable closeness to Israel. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should keep in mind that Israel is a country which does not respect the United Nations.

[13.01.2018]The March to Sanchar Bhawan should send the right message to the government - Each district union should send maximum number of comrades - Figures should be given to the CHQ latest by 20-01-2018.
The government is launching a series of attacks on BSNL and it's employees. Denial of Wage Revision, breaking BSNL by forming the Subsidiary Tower Company, reduction of the retirement age, etc., have to be stopped. We have to fight back with all our strength. The March to Sanchar Bhawan on 23-02-2018 should give the right message to the government. Hence, it should be organised with the widest possible mobilisation. CHQ calls upon each and every district union to send the maximum number of comrades for Sanchar Bhawan March. The number of comrades coming from each circle, should be intimated to the CHQ latest by 20.01.2018.
[13.01.2018]Four senior most judges of the Supreme Court accuse that sensitive cases are not being handed over to them.
In a totally unprecedented move, four senior most judges of the Supreme Court, revolted against the Chief Justice of India yesterday. Justice J. Chelemeswar, who is the senior most judge of the Supreme Court, next to the Chief Justice, together with justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Madan B Lokur and Justice Kurian Joseph conducted a press meet yesterday, to air their views. They accused that “cases of far-reaching importance to the nation” were being selectively given to junior judges, and that senior judges were being ignored. The one case that has made the four senior-most judges to revolt is, the one related to ‘the mysterious death of judge B.H.Loya’. The CBI special court judge, B.H.Loya, died under mysterious circumstances last year, and his family members had raised suspicion about his death. It is also very important to note that, at the time of his death, judge B.H.Loya was hearing the fake encounter pawn you case of “Sohrabuddin Sheikh”, in which the BJP President, Amit Shah is the main accused. Before conducting the press conference, the four judges approached the Chief Justice, and requested him to take corrective steps, which was not accepted. The Supreme Court is the guardian of the Constitution and democracy in our country. At a time when the democracy of the nation is under attack, it is worrying to note that, allegations have surfaced regarding the fairness and transparency of the Supreme Court.
[12.01.2018]CHQ demands that the circle administrations should provide monthly district wise break-up figures for the CHQ quota.

Gupta, GM (SR) today, and expressed their unhappiness that, despite the repeated requests made by the Union, the circle administrations are not sending monthly district wise break-up figures for the CHQ quota, being remitted through NEFT. In this regard, they requested the GM (SR) that Corporate Office should once again give direction to the circle administrations to provide the CHQ with the monthly statement with the above mentioned figures. The GM (SR) assured to do the needful.
