Saugata Roy proposes inclusion of matters of BSNL employees not getting salaries & closure of Jet Airways in the list of Govt business


Sir, I propose that the following items be included in the list of Government business for the week commencing on June 24, 2019.

1. The condition of the public sector company, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), which is making huge losses, is very serious. Both permanent and contract workers of BSNL are not being paid their salaries for months. The contract workers are not receiving salaries for five to six months. This is a pathetic situation in a public sector undertaking.

2. The matter of Jet Airways, which was the premier airlines in the country and which is now lying closed, needs the attention of the Government. It has now been referred to the NCLT (National Company Law Tribunal). There are 20,000 employees, of which 1,000 are from Kolkata. All of them are out of their jobs. The Government should not sleep. It should do something about reopening Jet Airways.

Thank you, Sir
