He was here to attend the state working committee meeting of the union organized at Buddha Vihar at Bokaro Steel City.

Speaking on the occasion Parashar said, our burning issue is the retrenchment of employees, faulty labor laws, the alienated attitude of the government towards the welfare of postal employees, MACP, Cadre restructuring, privatization including others.  “The union had been demanding appointment of staffs, civil servant status to the rural postal staffs, implementation of the proper pension scheme,” he added.
