COM. S. K. VYAS JI IS NO MORE
Com. S. K. Vyas Ji, the legendary leader of Central Government employees and Pensioners is no more. He passed away at about 08:20 PM on 13th February 2015 at a Jaipur (Rajasthan) hospital, where he was admitted a few days back after a massive heart attack. He was recovering, but all of a sudden, the situation worsened and he passed away. He was 85 years. His funeral took place at Jodhpur, his native place, on 14th February 2015.
Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers for forty years from 1967 to 2006. He was the President and Secretary General of All India Audit & Accounts Association for a long time. He continued as an Advisor of the Confederation and also as the General Secretary of National Coordination Committee of Pensioners (NCCP) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death.
Com. Vyas Ji has lead various struggles and strike actions of the Central Government Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first strike action of the Central Government Employees after Independence, in the year 1960. Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service. He played an important role in rallying the Central Government employees alongwith the striking Railway employees in the year 1974. He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and standing committee. He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Government employees. The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Government employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership. The Confederation of Central Government Employees & workers representing 1.5 million civil servants was in the forefront of the incessant struggles and strike actions organised by the Indian working class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Com. Vyas Ji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement of India.
Com. Vyasji was the friend, Philosopher, guide and everything for the Central Government employees movement. In the more than six decades long trade union life, Com. Vyasji endeared himself to every section of the Central Government employees. His death is an irreparable and irreplaceable loss to us. He was a great leader, symbol of simplicity, a gem of a person and a leader who is down to earth. Extremely polite, kind hearted and compassionate. One of the finest human being, tallest leader, a gentle mentor and a legend.
The National Secretariat of the Confederation bows its head down before the memory of the legendary leader and dips our flag paying tearful tribute to this valiat fighter of the Trade Union movement. While paying homage to this stalwart, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family members and also to the entire Central Government employees fraternity.
He is in our hearts! His memories will be forever with us! His long saga of struggle for the cause of the employees and workers will inspire the generations to come.
COM. S. K. VYAS JI AMAR RAHE !
LONG LIVE COM. S. K. VAYASJI !!
LONG LIVE, LONG LIVE !!!
