Subject:- Humble request for treating the period of strike which started on

Most respectfully we on behalf of 2.60 lacs of Gramin Dak Sevaks, the humble servants of the Gramin population urge upon you to consider the following submission in a head-of-family manner and issue necessary orders:
1. That the Department of Posts family consists of the Hon’ble Minister, officers of the Department, Departmental employees and Gramin Dak Sevaks. The Gramin Dak Sevaks are like the youngest members of the family and need to be treated like that.
2. That in an attempt to remind the Department of Posts of its commitment signed on 21.2.2014 and to honour the commitment so that the Government may not be accessed of dishonoring the written commitment the GDS employees staged a strike, a simple strike peaceful and calm.
3. That there was no subpages intimidation or violence. This was a simple way of demanding justified from the elders of the department. There was nothing to threaten the Government in any way. It was the most peaceful show the desire to get what was promised.
4. That the Gramin Dak Sevaks have cleared the pending work effactively and there has been no drayage done. All work is being done efficiently and in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
That sweet labour relations are always most productive. To ensure this, it is necessary to erase the scar that has occurred to the Gramin Dak Sevaks the smallest is the family.
We, therefore, very humbly request your honour to issue orders that the period of strike be treated as aid leave. This will not cost the Government any extra expenditure as otherwise the sevaks will avail the paid leave. On the other hand this will promote even better and tranquil labour relation.
Hope you will kindly consider the submission dispassionately and issue orders as requested.
With profound regards,
