AIPEDEU PUNJAB CIRCLE
AN HISTORIC, A UNIQUE AND AN
UNCOMPROMISED INDEFINITE STRIKE
IN THE HISTORY OF POSTAL DEPARTMENT
RUMOURS OF THE GUTLESS AND YESMAN
LEADERS CAN NOT STOP THE STRUGGLE OF GDS.
Strike needs adventure. Strike needs dareness. Strike needs honesty. Strike needs guts. Such adventure, dareness, guts and honesty are there in the October 2012 GDS indefinite strike led by AIPEDEU General Secretary Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah.
We extend our revolutionary greetings to all GDS comrades who have participated in the indefinite strike with strong determination and dedication for 7 days. 2012 October GDS indefinite strike is different from the previous strikes except 2008 GDS indefinite strike.
Generally the rulers and bureaucrats opposed the working class justified struggles. But in the case of October 2012 GDS indefinite strike the rulers and bureaucrats as well as the great leaders of the federations opposed and supported the department at highest degree to sabotise and dilute the strike. We have number of evidences and proofs. Com. Krishnan, the person who himself broke the unity of GDS employees with hidden agenda talked about the unity of postal workers as if the devils utterd vedas. Majority of GDS employees understood his deeds and identified that he is as cunning as fox and as dangerous as wolf.
Every body knows that the department of posts granted recognition to AIPEDEU and extended trade union felicities to Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah as General Secretary and all the elected office bearers. But this great leader is not ready to recognize AIPEDEU as trade union and shamelessly he called AIPEDEU is not an union and it is only Mahadevaiah group. What a narrowness! What a jealousy ! What a cruelty ! What a meanness! By doing this he insulted two lakhs fifty thousand GDS employees. We never see in the history of NFPE such deaf, dumb and lame leader.
Under the guide lines of this great leader all circle level and divisional level leaders started campaign against the indefinite strike. Some devotees of this great leader printed wall posters and pasted on the walls suggesting not to participate in the strike, which are live evidences till date. The Divisional Branch Secretaries of GDS union were asked forcibly not to participate in the striked by P-3 and P- 4 leaders. The propaganda was spread among the GDS by these leaders that the department is going to take serious action including dismissal against the strikers. Such type of propaganda naturally created confusion and fear among the GDS employees. Those who intentionally wanted to join in the strike stepped back. Then the leader maliciously felt happy and declared that the strike was fizzled out. We don't know what type of trade unionism is this?
After this great effort, Com. Krishnan explored and revealed the secret to his devotees through the editorial of his journal that Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah is an agent of department of posts. In the same Editorial he expressed that the ministers of communications and IT, Secretary postal board and all the senior officers of the department were refused to meet the leaders of GDS at an eleventh hour though the leaders requested for settlement of indefinite strike.
Everybody knows that the doors of the rulers and the department are always kept opened for agents, mediators and yesmen leaders. Com. Mahadevaiah is not an agent, mediator and yesman leader other hand he fought against the policies of the rulers. Naturally the ministers and officers are not interested to meet him.
The agents and mediaters showed their loyalty during 2008 and 2012 GDS indefinite strikes. They entered into 2008 December GDS indefinite strike with hidden agenda and withdrew the strike on the second day with out any achievement of GDS demands by diluting the strike. Hence the doors of the rulers are kept opened for them.
The great leader formed a new union with hidden agenda in favour of the Govt. to suppress the GDS movement. He announced that all the GDS are with newly formed union except a few. All the leaders of NFPE declared in each and every occasion that the newly formed union will get the recognition within two months. Though the department and officers supported them, it is pity that the newly formed union failed to obtain minimum 10%. Membership which is required to grant recognition.
If Com. Krishnan has any guts and honesty, collect the state wise figures of GDS employees who had with draw the primary membership from AIPEDEU under RTI Act. Publish the figures authoritatively in the postal crusader. It will decide the fact whether the majority of GDS are with AIPEDEU or Newly formed GDS union. Nobody can break the unity of postal workers except Com. Krihsnan. So beware of this leader!
