*AIBDPA organises a major programme at New Delhi, demanding Pension Revision and other burning problems of the pensioners.* The All India BSNL & DOT Pensioners Association (AIBDPA) had given call for a March to Sanchar Bhawan today, demanding Pension Revision and settlement of other burning problems of the pensioners. Hundreds of comrades came from the nooks and corners of the country, to participate in this programme. The programme started with a massive inaugural meeting at the Eastern Court, at Janpath. Com.V.A.N. Namboodiri, Advisor, AIBDPA, presided over the meeting. Com.A.R. Sindhu, Secretary, CITU, delivered the inaugural speech. Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU addressed the meeting. In his speech, the General Secretary greeted all the AIBDPA comrades, who had earlier worked in BSNLEU. He congratulated everyone for being in active trade union life and fighting for the cause of the pensioners, serving employees and also for the revival of the BSNL. As regards the pension revision w.e.f. 01.01.2017, the General Secretary firmly told that, no one can stop it for ever. On the recent Revival Package for BSNL, the General Secretary exposed it with facts and figures. Further, he solicited the support of the pensioners in all the struggles to be organised against the nefarious game plans of the Government, to weaken BSNL and to hand it over to the private. Others who addressed the meeting included Com.KKN.Kutty,SG, NCCPA, Com.R.N.Parashar, SG, Confederation, Com.K.Ragavendiran, GS, Postal Pensioners Association and others. However, this March to Sanchar Bhawan programme was canceled in the last minute, since the police was determined not to allow it, due to the promulgation of section 144. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the AIBDPA for organising a highly successful programme at New Delhi. *-P.Abhimanyu,GS.*
