 On  two days token strike, more than two lakhs BSNL comrades throughout India have shown tremendous, historical unity and marvellous response to call “Save Nation Save BSNL” given by Forum of BSNL Unions & Associations. Comrades registered their protest by staying out of Office and by holding demonstrations out of offices and registered their protest by holding demonstrations against anti PSU, anti BSNL strategies of DoT & Govt of India. Each and every comrade from all SSAs of Punjab Telecom Circle, Circle Office, Chandigarh SSA ,Ropar,Hoshiarpur ,Ludhiana ,Jalandhar,Amritsar,Sangrur,Bathinda , ITPC ,RTTC Rajpura,Patiala,Frezepur,Pathonkot SSAs  etc have shown solid unity and have shown of their commitment & determination towards the resolution demands raised by Forum Except FNTO all the unions and and Associations  participated in strike ,CGMT Punjab Circle office was locked in Punjab Circle,In Amritsar SSA participation of strike was 100% all the executives and Non Exceutives  Participated in strike hats off to com of Amrisar SSA.

This was possible due to strong initiatives by all District Secretaries, Circle/District Office Bearers & activist of all Unions/Associations throughout Punjab Circle . Response was so concrete that all CSCs, all Telephone Exchanges, all the Offices except few offices opened only for sending strike reports remained locked/closed throughout day. In many of the officers no single employee/officer was present even to give report of officers & staff in strike, which shows participation of comrades.  The official figures of participation in the strike is about 92.22% and remaining 7.88% are the only officers who are not members of any participant association or Blacksheeps and in whole struggle  only work done by them is sending two reports on participation in strike some officials from very few SSAs were seen under unwanted fear of two days salary cut or seen to maintain internal disputes and in shameless attempt some of them shown presence both at office as well as in strike Comrades Beware of Such Black sheeps

Comrades, impact of strike is visible to all and DoT which has kept mum for last six months has now called Forum leaders for discussions on demands on 27/04/2015. All comrades should continue their struggle in future programme   in same unity, more devotion/dedication and more active participation.
