After the incident of October 28, the employees Union of the BSNL staged protest demonstration on Oct. 29 demanding apology from the GM, but without disturbing the office environment. The following days employees wore black badge and later continue Non-cooperation with the GM followed by sit-in protest. But as no response was made to the protest, the employees of the BSNL Manipur begin pen down strike affecting all kinds of BSNL activities. Telephone or BSNL cell phone consumers were not allowed to pay bills at the received counters. Representatives of the Forum of BSNL Unions/ Association, while talking to media persons accuse the GM for his high handedness towards his employees many a times.
