Successfully organised “Lunch Hour demonstrations” today against operationalization of the Subsidiary Tower Company:
AIBSNLEA extend sincere gratitude and thanks all the comrades who actively participated in the Lunch Hour demonstrations through out the country and implemented it successfully. During Lunch Hour the representatives of Unions and Associations of BSNL along with their members reached in front of Sanchar Bhawan, Ashoka Road, New Delhi and organized very effective demonstration. Huge police and Rapid Action Force personnel were enforced by DoT Administration to contain the demonstrators. Delhi Police locked the doors of BSNL Corporate Office and did not allowed BSNL employees to come out from the Bharat Sanchar Bhawan during lunch hours so that they do not participate in lunch hour demonstration at Sanchar Bhawan. Police threatened all the leaders to arrest in case they go at Sanchar Bhawan and demonstrate since Section 144 of Cr PC was imposed in the vicinity of Sanchar Bhawan. Despite of all these threats the leaders along with their members succeed in reaching to Sanchar Bhawan and hold effective demonstration in the presence of huge police and RAF personnel. After some time police force took all the demonstrators in police custody and detained them in Parliament Police Station for two hours. After necessary police formalities against the leaders i.e. Com. Prahlad Rai, Com. G.L. Jogi, Com. C. SIngh, Com. Abhimanyu and Com. Suresh Kumar they released all the demonstrators at about 14.30 hrs. In this way a history has been created by organizing demonstration in front of Sanchar Bhawan for the first time after the formation of BSNL. We congratulate all the participants. AIBSNLEA CHQ Office Bearers, Circle Secretaries stationed at New Delhi along with their office bearers and members very actively participated in the demonstration at Sanchar Bhawan.
