All our Units are requested to take leading role, ensuring maximum participation of rank and file, in the successful conduct of the Dharna under the banner of State COC.

Dated 28th August, 2017
Dear Comrades,

We write this in continuation of our circular letter dated 26th August, 2017.  We have been in consultation with the members of the Sectt in finalising the quota for the 25th October, programme.  We have taken note of the relative strength of the organisations in  respect of their membership as also their capacity to mobilise them to take part in the programme.  We have tried to keep a balance of the ground reality in finalising the quota.  But still there may be aberrations.  We would request you to kindly bear with us and co-operate so that the programme slated for 25th October, 2017 must ultimately be a resounding success.  Please therefore, ensure that the quota is exceeded so that our precept and practice would be in complete sync. (please see annexure for the quota)  To compel the present Government to retrace their steps(howsoever erratic and wrong it was), we are aware is quite difficult, as their political mobilisation is not based on the common perception of welfare of the downtrodden. We must realise that the lessons from the history is that the ultimate victory is of vox populi.  We are beginning our struggle on Wednesday, 25th October, 2017.confident of its final outcome howsoever prolonged it may be. 

We have prepared the charter of demands on the basis of the deliberations we had at the National Executive Committee meeting.  It has covered almost all the points that figures in the discussion.  Together it covers the aspiration, hope and anxiety of all pensioners.  We are confident that the movement will gather momentum over the years and those who still hope against hope that benevolence will usher in will realise the folly to give the requisite acceleration, for we believe in all earnestness that wider the platform, earlier the event of victory. 

Appealing to all of you once again for your utmost efforts and strenuous endeavour to make the programme on 25th the most memorable and successful, and thanking you with greetings,

Yours fraternally,

Secretary General.
