New Delhi: A Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) official taking a nap at a meeting of Union Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw cost heavily. Actually, when he was caught sleeping, the employee has been discharged forever. According to the report, this officer has taken voluntary retirement (VRS). According to the report, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw was holding a meeting after the Cabinet gave the green signal to a package of Rs 1.64 lakh crore for the public sector enterprise.
Meanwhile, an officer present in the meeting dozed off. After being caught taking a nap in the meeting, this senior BSNL official decided to take voluntary retirement. According to a report, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw himself caught the chief general manager (CGM) level officer sleeping in the meeting and asked him to leave the room immediately. According to the report, the officer was posted in Bengaluru. After this, CGM was forced to take VRS. Let me tell you that the Union Minister had given a strict warning to the officials in the month of August itself.
In the first week of August, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw warned employees to improve performance to transform BSNL, failing which they opt for VRS. Now it seems that these words of his were not mere warnings. However, there has been no official comment from the Telecom Ministry and BSNL in this regard so far.
