He pointed out that how govt. has managed to exhaust all our reserves in a very calculative manner and cautioned the members to remain united and alert to safeguard their rights. Disinvestment policy of Govt. will never allow a comfortable position for BSNL as a bright example of MTNL’s financial position in front of us. Com.
