The United Draft placed before the Honourable President (Central Government) by the platform of United Working Class which is the only way out of the crisis of economy deepened further by the Pandemic! -

24th July, 2020
Shri Ram Nath Kovind
Hon’ble President of India,
Rashtrapati Bhawan,
President’s Estate ,New Delhi,
Delhi 110004
Respected Sir,
                          We hopefully place on record the following few facts which are agitating the toiling people of the country.
1. The sudden, unplanned national lockdown imposed by the Government of India and its administration, statedly on account of COVID – 19 pandemic, catastrophically affected the working people, the migrant workers amongst them being the worst hit. That they simply had no life support became clear as the days passed. Even the "advisories" issued belatedly by the Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Home Affairs did not help, in fact they were withdrawn by the government without being implemented.
2. The health system was exposed to be woefully inadequate-the private hospitals either simply refused to cap the rates, as appealed by the government, for treatment of Covid patients, stating they were uneconomical or simply closed doors. The ventilators, PPEs, sanitizer required were in extreme short supply. Only the public health system-the public hospitals, their doctors, their staff, the health scheme workers(ASHA Workers), anganwadi workers, the municipal sanitation workers worked tirelessly, risking their own lives including being affected and even lost lives and won everyone's admiration and gratitude. It were the Ordnance Factory workers who swung into action to produce the much needed ventilators and PPEs. The much touted private enterprise failed completely.
 3. Then the attention turned towards putting the wheels of the economy back on rails. The steps taken in this regard by the government defy all logic and the past experience as well as the advice of renowned Indian economists. The economy was already in recession from prior to the onset of the pandemic and was due to majority of Indian people lacking even the minimum purchasing power. It was necessary to put money in their hands. The sudden lockdown compounded the problem.

                              Yet what is being done? The increase in DA of government employees and DR of pensioners is withheld, Labour laws, including many of Hon'ble Supreme Court’s judgments on Equal Pay for Equal Work, are flouted mostly, with inspection being curtailed in the name of “ease of doing business”. Now even the Labour Laws, in whatever form they exist, were sought to be suspended for 1000 or more days through executive orders/Ordinances in many states, (The ILO had to remind the government of its commitment to various ILO Conventions), a slew of public sector enterprises were opened for privatisation, 100% FDI, ranging from blue chip companies such as the BPCL, LIC, Coal India, Electricity Sector, Ordnance Factories, the Railways, train routes as well as their manufacturing/repair workshops, airports, all during the continuing lockdown. Migrant Workers were actually sought to be prevented from going back to their villages by vested interests in the private sector. Their helpless crowding of stations was treated as law and order issue! The Hon'ble Supreme Court had to intervene to direct the government to handle the issue humanely and with top priority. Agriculture is pushed to corporatization through Ordinances. The Rs.20 lac crore package announced is once again Supply-side move rather than the necessary Demand-side push. Repeated Demands by the entire trade union movement for direct income-support and adequate food-support to all poor and non-income-tax-paying households is being arrogantly ignored.
4. Now it is coming to light that the ASHA Workers, who did the crucial Corona surveys, have not been paid at all! State governments have not been paid their share of GST. The income tax paying social strata has not been roped in to share the burden, but the non-income tax paying people are further burdened with relentless price increase of petrol and diesel. While
 GDP figures are bandied about as a measure of “national progress”, the question of equitable distribution is plainly ignored.
5. The entire trade union movement of the country has time and again raised these issues with the concerned ministries, through representations, demonstrations and even sectoral strikes. But the government is totally unresponsive. It has not even convened the Indian Labour Conference, the top most tripartite body in the country, in spite of repeated requests, since 2015.
In view of above points and issues, we the undersigned, urge you, as the Constitutional Head of the Government of India for the following reliefs:-
To direct Central and State Governments:-
1. To adequately compensate the dependents of those migrant workers, who lost their lives due to sudden lockdown effected from 12 Midnight of 25th March, 2020;

2. To provide free ration to all non-income- tax-paying people for the next six months, irrespective of whether they hold any ration card;

3. To pay every non-income- tax-paying person Rs.7500/- pm for the next six months; and pension of Rs.3000/-pm linked to cost of living to all above 60 years of age;

4. To issue Smart Id Card to all the workers with their Aadhar card number valid throughout India which should be useful for social security benefits;

5. To provide a corpus of Rs.10000 crores – a revolving annual FUND for the purpose of implementing Social Security Schemes under the provisions of Un-organised Sector Workers’ Social Security Act, 2008;

6. To withdraw the proposed move of the Government to convert the 41 Ordnance Factories into a corporation and then to privatise the same and to convert the Army Base Workshops to GOCO Model by handing over these Workshops to Private Sector;
 7. To withdraw move for Corporatisation of Railway Production Units and handing over 109 Railway routes to private Sector and privatization of railway stations;

8. To cancel the Privatisation of Public Sector enterprises and Services including State Transport, LIC, Banks, Insurance, Coal, BPCL, Air India, Airports, Telecom, Ports & Dock and Municipal services etc.

9. To put on hold any labour law amendments through codification of all labour laws in to four codes and to convene Indian Labour Conference immediately; scrap all the Ordinances and executive orders altering and/or suspending operation of labour laws in many states.

10. To Invest in and expand health, education and agriculture; scrap all the three Ordinances on Agriculture including on amendment of Essential Commodities Act.

11. To increase budgetary allocation for effective implementation of National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, 2005, increasing the job allocation for 200 days per annum and extend the similar scheme for urban areas also to address the issue of unemployment on war footing. The daily wage should be enhanced from Rs. 202/- to Rs. 500/-.

12. To launch drive to recover loans from Willful Defaulters, by using criminal prosecution.

                                   WHO EXPIRED DUE TO CORONA WHILE IN SERVICE

RESPECTED SIR,

                                 WE ARE VERY SORRY TO BRING TO YOUR NOTICE THE PATHETIC SITUATION OF THE FAMILY OF DAILY RATED MAZDOOR WHO EXPIRED DUE TO CORONA EFFECT WHILE IN SERVICE. DUE TO HIS ATTENDING TO DUTIES ONLY HE WAS AFFECTED WITH CORONA.THE DETAILS ARE MENTIONED BELOW.

                            In Mail Business Centre of Howrah RMS (RMS WB Division) in Kolkata, a DRM (Daily rated Mazdoor) SRI. Prasenjit Mazumdar aged about 35 had died after unsuccessful treatment for covid-19. He was declared as dead in the Bandel City Hospital ON 20.07.2020. One more life of postal fraternity is lost! But this time it is a casual labourer! That adds to the pain!

                           At least the Department is committed to give 10 lakhs compensation and a job to a family member if the employee is regular! Good but what about the poor family of a casual labourer? The entire family is fully dependent on the earnings of the casual labourer. Now that the young casual




labourer is gone forever. It is the responsibility of Department to compensate & help his family by taking appropriate steps.



                           We hope that the Department should not stand on its so called principles that DRM casual labourers are not eligible to anything which is inhuman! DoP should consider on humanitarian grounds and come to compensate to at least to a lesser degree if not on equal footing to a regular staff, by giving the family some financial compensation and assure a job to that family! After all Sri.Mazumdar laid down his sweet life working for India Post!

All of us will salute the Postal Board for its humanitarian gesture if extended to his family.

                      We hope that the kind secretary will respond immediately and issue orders helping his family.

Immediate positive response and a line in reply will be solicited.


Thanking you, sir.


Yours faithfully,

In Mail Business Centre of Howrah RMS (RMS WB Division) in Kolkata, a DRM (Daily rated Mazdoor) Comrade Prasenjit Mazumdar aged about 35 had died after unsuccessful treatment for covid-19. He was declared as dead in the Bandel City Hospital yesterday (20.07.2020). One more life of postal fraternity is lost! But this time it is a casual labourer! That adds to the pain!
At least the Department is committed to give 10 lakhs compensation and a job to a family member if the employee is regular! Good but what about the poor family of a casual labourer? The entire family is fully dependent on the earnings of the casual labourer. Now that the young casulal labourer is gone forever, is not the Department take some responsibility? I think the Postal Department should not stand on its so called principles that DRM casual labourers are not eligible to anything. It is inhuman! DoP should consider on humanitarian grounds and come to compensate to at least to a lesser degree if not on equal footing to a regular staff! Give the stranded family some financial compensation and assure a job to that family! After all comrade Mazumdar laid down his sweet life working for India Post!

                                                                SUB- Non drawl of wages to casual worker in
                                                          East Kolkata division-reg
                                                     REF: - Our earlier letter dated 28-6-2020

Respected sir,
                                       
                                          It was brought to our notice that wages were not paid to part time contingent/DRM workers in EAST KOLKATA DN. In this connection we have already submitted vide our letter cited u/r that already Ministry of finance, Dept.of expenditure issued clear instructions to all Departments not to stop payments to all casual labor. They are working sincerely with dedication to their duties in this dangerous situation keeping away their families and health as Postal Department declared as essential service.
                                          
                                             In this connection it is not out of place to mention that in other areas and state governments are paying extra rewards for their dedicated work. But unfortunately only in our Department in some Regions/Divisions this is happening, which is totally unethical and inhuman attitude.

                                      




                                      In addition we would like to bring to your kind notice that even though orders were issued by directorate to regularize casual labor who are working prior to 1-9-93 against 25% vacancies of MTS and modified MTS recruitment rules also to that effect long back, the same is not being Implemented particularly in EAST KOLKATA Division, eventhough number of casual labor are there in the division working prior to 1-9-93.
                                        
                                          As such we request you to issue clear instructions to pay the wages to casual workers & absorb eligible casual labor against MTS posts IN EAST KOLKATA DIVISION immediately and prove you are humanitarian in nature.
Expecting an immediate action and a line in reply.


Thanking you, sir.
Yours faithfully,

[P. MOHAN]
