Confederation Circulars are attached.

It was further decided that Convention would be held at every state capital. The date, venue and details of the Confederation leader attending the Convention are given in the attached circular.

The National Executive reviewed the implementation of the decision of the Special Conference on Special Contribution @ Rs 200/- per member.

The National Executive appealed to every unit to complete the targeted collection without any further delay and remit the same to Head Quarters latest by 15th Jan 2008. The National Executive reminds the unit leadership and the members that even the arrear payment of the Secretary General and Office Secretary could not be made for want of funds. Other obligations await further. A list of the units that have remitted the special fund is given elsewhere in this circular.




National Executive hailed the contribution of Com Prava Sarkar, Convener, Women's Committee who will be retiring from service on superannuation on 31st Dec 2008. The National Executive wishes healthy retired life.

Dated: 17th December, 2008

Dear Comrade.

This is in continuation of our Circular No. D-20/ dated 13.12.08. As discussed in National Executive, the modified Charter of Demand is enclosed.

The National Executive has decided to organize campaign conventions in all state capitals preferably between 6th and 9th June 2009. The tour programme of the members of the Sect. of the Confederation is enclosed. The COC may kindly take steps to convene the convention on the prescribed dates without fail. It will be difficult to change the date as such change will bring about a cascading effect and will make the programme impracticable. Therefore, the COCs may adhere to the date. The Convention for Gujarat has to be changed for 12th Jan. 08 beyond the time schedule prescribed by the National Executive. This was unavoidable due to the reason that Com. S.K.Vyas would not be able to reach Mumbai on 8th Jan. 2009.

The Rally to be organized at Delhi on 2.01.09 must have representative participation from all over the country. The No. of comrades who must be deployed by the concerned COC for the purpose of joining the said rally is indicated hereunder. The COC may kindly ensure that they do deploy the stipulated No. of Comrades i.e. the minimum for participation in the rally.

With greeting
