         Struggle, Struggle and Struggle---

Be ready for decisive struggle for our legitimate rights and MTNL revival & Survival --Expose  dual character, vested interests & negative forces who may join hands with the management to weaken the struggle. Make them understand that this struggle is for the genuine and righteous issues which are being denied for a quite long time by management on one pretext or the other and no serious efforts have been made to resolve them. Let every one including management must know that we are the one who are most concerned about the MTNL financial health and its customers, and we are also concerned about the  duties, responsibilities and rights of the employees of the this company.  We are of the firm opinion that employees are not at all responsible for the bad financial condition of the company and so they can not be held responsible by denying their dues of 2nd PRC and 3rd PRC  while those ( Ministers, Secretaries, Joint Secretaries and other officers of DOT and MTNL board)  whose policies and decisions have destroyed this company  are getting all benefits of pay revisions. It is the height of injustice which can not be tolerated and we will go to any extend to get justice. All officers and employees are appealed to make this struggle a decisive struggle. Those who will betray the employees and work against trade union ethics, will  have to face  consequences..
