Tapen Sen M.P and GS CITU addressing Dharna of NCCPA
Govt denies pension to those employees who toiled all through his life for the service of people and nation. If the service organisations are vibrant and fighting, then only pensioners issues can be advanced. This important aspect you comrades not to forget. Parliament is coming up. Government is selling the nation. They talk nationalism but do anti-national policies. All central TUs are unitedly organising Dharna in November for three continuous days. That Dharna is against the anti-worker and anti-people policies of govt. The corporates able to fool people and that is why they maintain their grip on people. But if you continue to fight against those policies that harm people, that grip will weaken. It is no more a govt supporting the corporates; it is a govt of corporates! Today all unions are in one platform to oppose privatisation. This is the change that you can't see ten years back. I take this opportunity of Dharna of senior citizens to tell you in addition to fight for your demands, also come forward to unite with all sections in common struggle. You speak about judgments implemented only to litigants! But the govt got power and majority to enact in parliament to reject any judgment! Therefore concentrate on your mobilization and fighting capacity! PF.ESIC like social security organizations have lit of money; this will be pooled under a commission headed by PM to use it elsewhere! Independent experts probably proposed by RSS will be the members instead of employers and employees now in these organisations. This is the kind of situation you are today. Let all join together and protect social security and universal pension. You should join mainstream of working class movement. If we unite and identify our enemy, then no force can defeat us!
