AIPEU GDS :: 2nd Phase agitation programme - DAY LONG DHARNA IN FRONT OF CIRCLE / REGIONAL OFFICES ON 24th Nov 2022

    Dear all participants of today's Dharna programme of our AIPEU GDS -- greetings & thanks to all of you for the success of 2nd phase programme.

    Today is an auspicious day for our NFPE i.e., today is the foundation day of NFPTE, the 24th November 1954. We are remembering the sacrifices of our predecessors for their continuous struggle for the betterment of postal employees and working class of this country, as well.

    We are continuing the legacy of our great leaders on all occasions and also today's agitation programme of AIPEU GDS for the achievement of our justified demands of GDS cadre.
One writeup of our senior leader is extracted from whatsapp groups and published below regarding this 24th Nov...

    The 24th November 2022 is the 68th Anniversary of the formation of National Federation of  P  and T Employees (NFPTE), the mighty organisation of the Posts and Telegraphs (including Telephones) Employees. it was formed at New Delhi on 24th November 1954, by merging all the existing P and T Unions, under a reorganisation plan. 

    NFPTE was in the forefront of the major historic Strikes of the Central government employees in 1960, 1968 , 1974 etc. Comrades Dada Bhosh (B.N.Ghosh,), O.P.Gupta, K.G.Bose, N.J.Iyer, K.Adinarayana, D.Gnaniah, were some of the prominent leaders, who gave inspiring leadership to the movement. Of course, there were serious inner struggles on ideology and also on how to organise struggles etc., that continued for many years. Many disputes also arose. Unity was restored by the end of seventies.

    The government did not want the  P and T Department to continue. Posts and Telegraphs were made in to separated departments. Naturally, NFPTE was also bifurcated in to NFPE and NFTE in  the Calcutta Federal Council held on 17-21 March 1986. NFPTE as such existed only for 32 years, but its impact is still in the trade union movements. 

    After formation of BSNL, BSNL Employees Union continues as the progressive union following the great tradition of NFPTE. In the Postal side NFPE continues as the torch bearer. 

    On the 68th Anniversary of NFPTE, we salute all the comrades who led the movement, worked sincerely, sacrificed every thing for the upliftment of the workers and also who sacrificed their lives in the many heroic struggles !

    As a comrade who entered the department in 1958 and participated and was victimised in all the heroic struggles, I express my thanks to the organisation and leaders for allowing me to be part of this great organisation. !

NFPTE Zindabad ! 

(Com.V.A.N.Namboodiri (80s) is a veteran leader of NFPTE and comtemporary to all our postal leaders for decades and still serving for BSNL workers and working class.)

Once again thanking all our CHQ office bearers, Circle Secretaries, Br/Division Secretaries and beloved members & organizers, all the leaders of NFPE for their support and cooperation for the success of this agitation programme.

Fraternally yours,
Tapan Bhowmik
General Secretary

Our CHQ has received some photographs from few Circles on today's programme and report is yet to come from many circles. On receipt of it, we will publish in this blog, soon.
