Dear Comrades,

At the out set we thank the Circle leadership who strived hard to ensure maximum participation to make the March to Parliament on 25/11/2011 against the PFRDA bill a grand success.

The UPA-II Government has decided to embark upon the enactment of PFRDA Bill in this session of the Parliament. The BJP whose leader Yashwant Sinha was the Chairman of the Standing Committee has also decided to support to the bill. Therefore, it is likely that the bill may come up for consideration of the Parliament today. Com. Basudev Acharya, M.P. Loksabha & leader of the CPI(M) has moved three amendments including the grant of guaranteeing minimum statutory pension (50% of the last pay drawn) to the bill. However, it is unlikely the other political parties who are proponent of neo-liberal economic policies will support the amendment.

The Steering Committee of organizations opposing the PFRDA Bill met yesterday and have decided to call upon all constituents to hold 2-hour demonstrations at all work spots tomorrow i.e. on 22nd December 2011.

We, therefore request all the Circle General Secretaries to take necessary steps that massive demonstration is organized in front of all offices tomorrow on 22nd December 2011 at your convenient time against the enactment of PFRDA Bill.

With Greetings,

Yours fraternally,

Ashok B Salunkhe
Secretary General
