Rally of United forum from BSNL Corporate office to parliament street, New Delhi. 

More then 3000 executives of the United forum participated in a massive rally which started from BSNL corporate office and was intercepted by police at Parliament street police station. The rally was addressed by GS/TEAM, GS/AIBSNL EA, GS/MTNL EA, GS/ SNEA(I) and Com M.K.Bagchi, ex-GS/JTOA(I). The enthusiasm and motivation of the participants of the rally was simply superb, with everyone reiterating his resolve to struggle to the last drop of his blood till the issue reaches its logical conclusion i.e repatriation of all the absorbed executives of BSNL/MTNL to DOT.  

Later on, a memorandum was submitted to Jt Secy/DOT by the GSs of all the constituents of the United forum, since Secy/DOT is out of Country and is expected to return on 24th Nov,08. We explained in detail our stand to Jt Secy/DOT and unequivocally conveyed to him that executives of BSNL/MTNL mean serious and real business in terms of completely ending the present dual policy of the govt. by repatriating all the absorbed executives of BSNL/MTNL to DOT. We also conveyed it to him that very shortly there would be a war like situation in both BSNL/MTNL when the resolution of the United forum that no absorbed executive would report to or obey the orders of the deputationists after 22nd Dec.,08 would be enforced by the United forum. The internal strife that will arise because of our total defiant stand to blatantly disobey the orders of outsiders after 22nd Dec.,08 must be avoided by DOT by acting concretely and decisively on the resolution of the United forum i.e repatriation of all absorbed executives to DOT from BSNL/MTNL, clearly we impressed upon Jt Secy/DOT, asking him to convey it to the concerned authorities.
