 31.07.2017 Our salute to one more stalwart leader of TEAM !!!

Reverse counting of days in service  as CAO (BB) for MTNL will stop today evening, for our beloved, dedicated and stalwart leader Sh. V.P. Bhardwaj.  A leader who has inspired many of us to work for our colleagues who cannot represent /raise their problems / issues at appropriate platform will take rest from active day to day work of MTNL. He if feels suitable may contribute more for welfare of all employees/executives with his all available time and well known abilities. 

His contribution is very vast and result oriented and hence cannot be summed up in this small paragraph written here. Starting with the cadre based Association APSOA then to JAC and finally to TEAM a long journey has been covered by him without compromising with any issue. His positive approach and tireless contribution for achieving the legitimate demands are unmatched even today, when he is retiring.  He has set an example for so called leaders of employees/executives, who do not work /contribute for department in the name of their respective post in their organizations. He has not only himself served department with the same devotion and dedication as he served to this TEAM but inspired many of our TEAM Executives for doing so. We are proud of our Stalwart leader and we salute him with our bowed shoulders and wet eyes.

It was a very long association and moments of this journey are unforgettable. TEAM Wishes you a very happy, peaceful and healthy retired life ahead.

Brief description of departed leader

Senior most  leader of P&T and Central Government employees, Com. D. Gnaniah passed away, today, 8th July,2017 at the age of 96 years in Coimbatore. With his demise, the void is complete.

He started his career as Postal Clerk at Karur, Tamilnadu in 1941.In the same year the applied for and joined in Army Postal Service and was posted at Cairo, where he used the famous Victoria Library which was near his office for extensive reading.

In Army Postal (APS), he worked in Egypt, Cyprus, Libya, Syria and Palestine during 1941-1946. This is during World War-II period.

After repatriation, he joined and lead militant trade union movement in Tiruchirapalli. He participated in first of its kind, All India Postal Strike in 1946.

In the Central Government employees strike during the period from 12-7-1960 to 16-7-1960 he was leading the strike at Tiruchirapalli. He was dismissed from service. Later, after Court orders, was reinstated in service after several months. Full salary was paid as per court orders.

He was the Secretary General of NFPTE during the historic one day strike on 19-9-1968, by the Central Government employees in which P&T Employees took the lead. It was historic in the sense; we demanded ‘Need based wages’ for every employee.

 During emergency,  he was  brought back as Secretary General. Due to harsh curbs on his leave and movement outside, he took voluntary Retirement to discharge his duties as Secretary General. After Janata Party took over, he rejoined duty.

In all, he was dismissed once, suspended thrice, was jailed thrice(once in Tihar jail) besides being forced to take voluntary Retirement for his trade union activities.

He was the Secretary to Staff side in JCM Departmental Council when the historic Bonus agreement in the name of Productivity Linked Incentive was signed by him.He was proficient in Hindi and English and his fiery speeches in Hindi across the nation were instrumental in militant P&T employee’s movement, who in turn, were leading the entire Central Government employees.He was a founder member of NFPTE in 1954 and is the last one among the founders to depart. He held the top post of Secretary General,. NFPTE during 1964 – 1970and 1976-1978.

After his final retirement in January 1979, he was involved in Social, political activities besides Trade union work in advisory role. He has authored several books in Tamil and English on various topics.He was a great inspiration for many generations of comrades through several decades.

We pay our homage to the towering leader and offer our deep condolences to the bereaved family.
