Com Shankar, GS BASE(I) assured the full support in the coming days and all their circle/SSA units will take active and 100% participation as their issues being taken care of JF.
Both the GS, made it very clear that their path of negotiation with the management was paved, by the mass CL of more than TWENTY FOUR THOUSAND EXECUTIVES as part of JF call. GS AIGETOA claimed the selective threat of disciplinary action of management is a feather in his cap for his success in consolidation of executives’ support, to which GS SNEA assured the house that the action on AIGETOA leadership will be nullified in total at any cost. Both GS have appealed to all the activists not be complacent but be prepared for any short notice to hit back to the management by our organizational action if situation so demands. When some leadership in the fag end of his service takes a narrow view to defeat the success of larger issues, their members have every right to take a considered comprehensive stand in the larger benefit of executives and this message should reach down the line.
As such presently we are much concerned with the stiff competition and price war we are facing in the industry, the JF will strive hard to utilize all methods to convince MOSC, DOT, BSNL and if they fail to be sincere and honest at any stage, we will be and we must be ready to react.

The meeting adjourned sine die with a resolution of working with strong bonding in the circle for achieving the local and CHQ issues.
