March to Parliament – Repeal Prasar Bharati Act

INVC,, New Delhi,, National Federation of Akashvani and Doordarshan Employees (NFADE) is an umbrella organization of 21 service associations of around 40,000 employees working in various disciplines of AIR and Doordarshan such as Engineering, Programme, Administration, Drivers, Stenographers etc spread all over the country.  NFADE once again wishes to highlight the contradictions prevailing within Prasar Bharati and its relevance in the present scenario. As the part of the 6th phase of agitation NFADE organized a Parliament March from Mandi House (Doordarshan Bhawan) to Parliament in which approximately 3500 employees of AIR&DD  participated. For supporting the NFADE for this issue Sh. Mohammed Amin, General Secretary, CITU & Politbureau member CPI(M);  Sh. Sampath, MP(Lok Sabha); Sh. Mohan Singh, General Secretary, SP, Sh. Maheswari Hazari, MP (JDU), Sh. M.B. Rajesh MP, Sh. K.K. Kutty, Secretary General (Confederation of Central Govt. Employees)   and several other MPs joined rally and said our party gives full support.

The Union Government itself filed an affidavit before the Hon’ble Supreme Court way back in 2005 that they could not implement the Act in letter and spirit, as Prasar Bharati is financially not viable to maintain the assets and the employees.

The Group of Ministers constituted in March 2006, under the chairmanship of Shri. Shivraj Patil, the then Home Minister (in which Sh. Chidambaram, in the capacity of Hon’ble Minister of Finance was also the member) could not finalise their recommendations even after more than 3 years, except discussing the possibility of issuing public equity to cover the losses. The only positive recommendation was to retain the employees in government fold. Now it is learnt that Govt has constituted another GoM, under the Chairmanship of Sh. Chidambaram, perhaps again to prolong the matter?

Having had enough of the miserable experience for the last 12 years, the NFADE is now demanding repeal of the PB Act itself, so that AIR&DD are back in government fold.

I have to say that Im really unimpressed with this. I mean, sure, youve got some very interesting points. But this blog is just really lacking in something. Maybe its content, maybe its just the design. I dont know. But its almost like you wrote this because everybodys doing it. No passion at all.

Although, they have an edge being less time consuming, fast foods are highly controversial due to their role in developing health ailments. Apple mint Mentha suaveolens is also common, and resembles spearmint in flavor although it has fuzzy leaves.

However, before I discuss about these natural drinks, I would like you to understand that there are some basic things about weight lose you have to know and these can compliment your other efforts when losing weight. The main reasons for shifting calories is to allow metabolism to adjust to your diet and also not to get bored eating same meals all the time.

Repeal the PB Act itself, so that AIR & DD are back in government fold. Three Cheers for NFADE.....for demanding to go back to govt. But govt has got the guts to do this ? Big Question mark.....
