Pen down strike by employees of BSNL Maipur enters three day today, freezing all official works relating to telecommunication service in the state. The strike which was called by the employee’s body of BSNL in protest against the high handedness of General Manager J. Lunkim, who had allegedly assaulted a sincere employee in his office room, now said that GM J. Lunkim is an inefficient leader with no marks of any achievement in the functioning of the BSNL.
The employees said that unless Lunkim is transferred from his present post they will continue the strike. They further added that the matter has been forwarded to the national level body of BSNL.
With the strike being underway, all revenue collection works of the BSNL has been put to complete halt. Complaint about internet line defect or land line connection has not been accepted creating lot of inconveniences to the consumers.
Manipur, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh is under the Secondary Switching Area (SSA) of North East Circle one. Other service provider like Vodafone, Aircel, Reliance, Airtel, Idea etc. can promote business service of the BSNL but as Mr. Lunkim is showing no interest in this sector Manipur BSNL is becoming a complete flop. An employee said that Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh is doing much better comparing to Manipur even though Manipur is blessed with more numbers of consumers.
The employees further added that most of the time the BSNL Manipur is receiving frequent complaints from nationalized bank as there banking activities are completely depended on internet service. Frequent break down in the internet service is the main reason for the complaints from the banks.
