Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Jan 7: Pensioners of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd  (BSNL) and Department of Telecom (DoT) of J&K Telecom Circle , Jammu held a demonstration and sat on fast with candle lights in front of CGTM’ Chamber to highlight their long pending grievances.
About one hundred persons from all parts of State participated in the protest despite the extreme cold and heavy rains to express their resentment against the biased attitude of the flawed administration.
They said that the various rules, regulations and policies framed by the Centre or BSNL board are not being followed by J&K Telecom Circle and the Circle has framed its own rules to put the pensioners under severe stress and tension.
They said as per NCRB data, J&K is second in corruption and unfortunately the DoT/BSNL pensioners in the State are not being considered as the senior citizens of India.
