NJCA MEETING - 18-08-2018

CONFEDERATION, NFPE AND AIDEF INSISTED REVIVAL OF INDEFINITE STRIKE -- AUTHORIZED NJCA CHAIRMAN AND CONVENER (RAILWAY FEDERATIONS  - AIRF & NFIR) TO TAKE FINAL DECISION REGARDING INDEFINITE STRIKE .

NJCA meeting was held on 18-08-2018. Government has ignored the ultimatum given by NJCA  and has not given any cognizance  to NJCA's Resolution  adopted on 03-07-2018 and the letter dated 03-07-2018 addressed to Cabinet Secretary. Government has betrayed NJCA and entire Central Government employees and Pensioners. Therefore, the Representatives of Confederation, NFPE and AIDEF insisted to revive the indefinite strike and start preparations for the strike immediately, as all employees are eagerly waiting for such a decision from NJCA.

Railway Federations (AIRF & NFIR) are yet to take a decision regarding revival of indefinite strike. After discussion it was decided to authorize the Chairman & Convener of NJCA (Railway Federations - AIRF & NFIR)  to take final decision and convey the same to Government and also to all constituent organizations of NJCA.

As NJCA could not take any final decision regarding strike, Confederation shall go ahead with its decision to organize one day nationwide strike on 15th November 2018. In the mean time all Central Trade Unions (other than BMS) and independent Federations (including Confederation) are holding a National Convention at New Delhi on 28th September 2018. If any decision for strike is taken in that convention, the date of the Confederation's strike will be changed to synchronize  with the date(s) of the Central Trade Unions and independent Federations, as already decided in the June 10th Hyderabad National Convention.

PM condoles demise of former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee - PIB News


The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has condoled the demise of Former Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

“मैं नि:शब्द हूं, शून्य में हूं, लेकिन भावनाओं का ज्वार उमड़ रहा है। हम सभी के श्रद्धेय अटल जी हमारे बीच नहीं रहे। अपने जीवन का प्रत्येक पल उन्होंने राष्ट्र को समर्पित कर दिया था। उनका जाना, एक युग का अंत है।
लेकिन वो हमें कहकर गए हैं- “मौत की उमर क्या है? दो पल भी नहीं, ज़िन्दगी सिलसिला, आज कल की नहीं मैं जी भर जिया, मैं मन से मरूं, लौटकर आऊँगा, कूच से क्यों डरूं?”

अटल जी आज हमारे बीच में नहीं रहे, लेकिन उनकी प्रेरणा, उनका मार्गदर्शन, हर भारतीय को, हर भाजपा कार्यकर्ता को हमेशा मिलता रहेगा। ईश्वर उनकी आत्मा को शांति प्रदान करे और उनके हर स्नेही को ये दुःख सहन करने की शक्ति दे। ओम शांति !

India grieves the demise of our beloved Atal Ji. His passing away marks the end of an era. He lived for the nation and served it assiduously for decades. My thoughts are with his family, BJP Karyakartas and millions of admirers in this hour of sadness. Om Shanti.

It was Atal Ji's exemplary leadership that set the foundations for a strong, prosperous and inclusive India in the 21st century. His futuristic policies across various sectors touched the lives of each and every citizen of India.

Atal Ji's passing away is a personal and irreplaceable loss for me. I have countless fond memories with him. He was an inspiration to Karyakartas like me. I will particularly remember his sharp intellect and outstanding wit.

It was due to the perseverance and struggles of Atal Ji that the BJP was built brick by brick. He travelled across the length and breadth of India to spread the BJP's message, which led to the BJP becoming a strong force in our national polity and in several states”, the Prime Minister said in a series of tweets.

Earlier All India Institute of Medical Sciences New Delhi issued a Press Release informing that the Former Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee passed away at 05:05pm.
