Union Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has warned of a 'do or die' in a stern tone of BSNL employees. At least 62,000 BSNL employees have been strictly instructed by Vaishnav to leave the 'government' attitude and work properly. Not only this, but the Telecom Minister has also said that if they do not do so, he will give forced retirement to the employees. In fact, Ashwini Vaishnaw has told the employees in a strict tone that they should work well or take retirement. Let us tell you that the Telecom Minister called a meeting of senior officials on Thursday to improve the situation of BSNL.
In this meeting, the Minister started telling the employees of BSNL in a stern tone. You may be aware that Vaishnav had announced a relief package of Rs 1.64 lakh crore this week to bring the crumbling company BSNL back on track. At the same meeting, the minister said, "I will check the performance every month. Those who do not want to work can take retirement of their own free will and go home. And if that does not happen, such employees would be forcibly retired, as was done in the Indian Railways.''
Let us tell you that in order to make BSNL financially strong, the Union Cabinet had on July 27 approved a revival package of Rs 1.64 lakh crore. At the same meeting, Vaishnav further said, "We have done what we were supposed to do. Now you need to perform well. It's going to be the new normal from now on. Do well or retire. In this competitive industry, only your performance can save your job. I want to see the results in the next 24 months. I will see the monthly report of the performance of all employees every month.''
At the same time, the minister said, "The way the revival package has been designed, no other government in the world can take such a big risk as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken." It wasn't a small allotment. Let us also tell you that the Cabinet has also approved a proposal to merge Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BBNL) with BSNL.
