A meeting of district executives of Ludhiana Telecom was organised at Bharat Nagar chowk here on Friday in which BSNL workers from all over Punjab took part.

Addressing the meeting,NT Sajwani,secretary general of NFTE,said,”The BSNL workers’ union will fight against the anti-worker and anti-BSNL polices of the government in power,be it NDA or UPA.” He said that it was their policies which were responsible for BSNL’s lagging behind in competition with the private sector.

Sajwani said that they would fight for survival of BSNL and its development even as he demanded a thorough probe into the spectrum scam. He also demanded an early wage revision or an interim relief for at least Rs 5,000 at the earliest and a modified promotion policy after discussion with all the unions in BSNL. He said disinvestment in BSNL in any shape would be strongly resisted. Prem Singh,district president,Tarlochan Kaur,Rajiv Sharma,SP Singh,and ML Sharma also addressed the workers.
