From the meeting a delegate of P. Bhattacharjee, J. Majumdar, A. Lahiri & S.

Our Chief PMG also assured us to take appropriate action. However, we are committed to stand by these PA/SA till their posting.
N.B : It is learnt that another organisation of our department has started condemning our program and efforts like meeting on 03.5.15 and assembling at Yogayog Bhavan on 08.05.15. They are trying to malign our organisation and create an impression that all our efforts are meaningless. As we are morally accountable to all the candidates, we cannot only sit back and relax and watch the administration do as they wish. With our entire strength, we have to create pressure from inside the department also for their appointment and that is exactly what we are doing and will continue to do. We are keeping constant watch, pursuing every corner, be it our Circle Office, or be it Postal Directorate through our Central Headquarters in New Delhi.
Actually, in 1968 our rival union was formed only to appease and satisfy the Administration. They have no loyalty to the postal employees. That is why we are holding huge majority in membership. Our credibility and loyalty is only for the employees, not for the administration. In fact, this union has no work except to malign us which would at this situation, only complicate the issue. So, be careful of this organization.
Once again, we are declaring clearly that if it requires for the interest of the candidates, we will again hold organisational programs involving these new PA/SA, no matter what the administration or their followers think.
Resolution adopted in demonstration held today organised by group of NFPE West Bengal Circle at Yogayog Bhawan for immediate joining of newly recruited PA/SA , 2014 & submitted to Smt. Kavery Banerjee, Director General of Postal Services in presence of above 200 selected PA/.SA candidates of West Bengal Circle.
