Due to non-receipt of their monthly salaries BSNL’s contractual employees have taken the decision of vote-boycott in retaliation.
They say that if people do not get their salary before the Lok Sabha elections, then they will not vote. In this regard, on Monday, the contractual employees staged a protest in front of BSNL office in Collegepara of Siliguri.
Speaking to the journalists, the people said that there are many other contractual employees like us, who have not been paid for several months. This leads us to many problems in our living conditions. In such a situation, none of us are in a position to vote. For this reason the contractual employees and their family members have decided not to vote if the salary is not paid.
