Bathinda, July 6

Four BSNL employees climbed atop a mobile tower while other staff protested outside their office at Bharat Nagar area today. Protesting employees alleged that they have not received salary for the past 17 months.

Sanjay Singh, president, BSNL Contract Workers’ Union, said, “Only 85 workers are left as numerous employees were coerced to opt for the voluntary retirement scheme. Now, workers have not received salary for the past 17 months and are finding it hard to make both the ends meet.”

He said, “Despite bringing the matter to the notice of a contractor and higher officials in the BSNL, nothing concrete has happened on the ground.”

Rahul Ashokayan, principal general manager, said, “The contractor did not gave salary as the BNSL failed to clear his outstanding dues. We have been writing to the head office to release funds, but to no avail.”
