EDITORIAL POSTAL CRUSADER JUNE-2015


ONE YEAR OF MODI GOVERNMENT
DISAPPOINTING TO WORKING CLASS

            Modi Government has completed ONE YEAR. Within this one year. No remarkable change or development is being seen. So many populous slogans and promises during election campaign and thereafter coming in power were made and people of India were hypnotized and got their Votes and formed the government with full majority and this happened after 30 years when a single party came in power with full fledged majority. Working class in general and salaried class in particular was very hopeful for “ACHCHHE DIN” (Good Days) and they were expecting D.A.  merger, Interim Relief and raising in income tax exemption limit. But Government denied everything instead of giving any relief to the working class, all round  attacks were started in several  forms in the shape of Labour  Laws amendments, attack on wages and lively hood of working class who create wealth for the nation and ban on recruitment in Central Government Services for one year, attack on social security  rights doing away with the employees provident fund scheme and diverting a part of fund for speculation in share market doing away with ESI converting the same in to an insurance scheme under IRDA Drastic cut on  social sector expenditure and allocation on welfare schemes like ICDS, Mid Day Meal, NHRM, MNREGA with the Motive of finally doing away with such pro-people schemes  and programmes altogether.

            A vigorous campaign has been launched to  change the  labour laws like Industrial Dispute Act 1947, Factories Act, Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition Act) and all wages related legislations etc, in favour of employers with the object to throw away the   Working Class of country out of purview of protection under the labour laws and Completely dismantling  entire labour law enforcement machinery,

            Never before the Working Class has faced such a situation. This is the working class who create GDP to Nation and profits to employers.

            In Central Government Sector also these attacks are being intensified. 100% FDI has been declared in Railway and 49% in Defence Production paving way for capitalists/corporates to enter in to these sectors. Disinvestment has been started in profit making public sectors like NTPC, NHPC, Coal India etc. and planning to disinvest all profit making sectors.

            In Postal Department also there is danger of corporatization and privatization if the recommendations of Task Force Committee headed by Shri T.S.R. Subramanian are implemented. Though at present on account of stiff resistance by PJCA (NFPE/FNPO) the recommendations have not been implemented but these have also not been rejected by the Department of Posts and may be introduced at any time after changing the forms so we have to keep a vigilant watch over this.

            Contrary to this all schemes and planning’s are being made to give  benefits to Corporates / Capitalists by way of promulgating ordinances for decentralization of Coal mining  sector, de-regularization of other Mineral resources  through auction route totally being unconcerned about the lively hood of  local and tribal peoples and forest dwellers.

            The peasantry and agriculture workers are also worst sufferers due to the policies of Modi Government. The prices of seeds, fertilizers, power, diesel, Water for irrigation have been increased many folds but the MSP of Wheat and rice has been increased by Rs.50/- per quintal only. The land of farmers will be snatched away without their consent in favour of capitalists and if the present amended land acquisition act is implemented

            So based on the above  facts, it is crystal clear  that the policies of present Modi Government  are totally in  favour of Capitalists / Corporates and against the interests of Working Class . The hope of “ACHCHHE DIN” (Good Days) is now diminished and working class and common man of this country is disappointed.
