Dear Comrades,

CWC MEETING – SALUTE TO ‘TEAM ALLAHABAD’

Everyone who attended the CWC meeting at Allahabad would give a ‘thumps up’ to the comrades of Allahabad who made the delegates and observers feel at home.

From receiving the delegates and observers at various Railway stations (and even at Varanasi airport) to seeing off every one was unprecedented experience. The needs of every delegate and observer were attended to.

The leadership of our Units at Allahabad deserves credit for ensuring the involvement and participation of all the central trade Unions and Federations for the successful conduct of CWC. It was the leaders and cadres of fraternal Trade Unions and even student front that did all the decorative part of arrangement such as festoons, stage, martyrs column, flag pole etc. Never have we seen a Chairman of Reception Committee like Com Harish Chandra Dwivedi who, though out, was taking care of each detail. Hats off to all of them!

In none of our Conferences or CWCs in the past we have seen such a participation of leaders of all Central Trade Unions in the inaugural session and in the conduct of the meeting – the lone exception being the 40th Conference in Thrissur in October-November 1993. The credit, of course, goes to leaders of our movement – the leading role and deep involvement of our comrades in the struggles of the working population of the city alone caused such a hearty reciprocation. All our Units have something to learn from Allahabad.

Right from day before the commencement of CWC, Com Vinod Dubey, President of All India Audit & Accounts Officers Association and Com Mushtaq Ahmed, General Secretary of AO/SAO Association, Allahabad were present helping the activists.

Team of Allahabad – i.e. team of Com Subhash Pandey – consisting of Comrades Manoj Kumar Shrivastava, Promod Kumar Mishra, Prakhar Shrivastava, Pankaj Shrivastava, Ashish Kumar Mishra, Akhilesh Shrivastava, Mayank Dubey, Sumit Verma, Amit Singh, Santosh Kumar Mishra, Rajesh Kumar Shrivastav, Imran, SK Singh, Arunesh Mishra, Naveen Dubey, Ramashray Rai, Tarun Banerjee, Rajkumar Yadav, Rajesh Kumar Shrivastav, Sushil Kumar Mishra, Manoj Kumar Pandey and others deserve all credit and congratulations for the wonderful arrangements and warm hospitality. It will not be wrong to say that the hospitality did defeat the humid weather on those days at Allahabad.

But for the total commitment and warmth shown by the comrades of Allahabad, the CWC would not have been able to cause an in depth analysis of the organisational structure, its strengths and weaknesses and come up with an approach that will take the movement forward.

Felicitation of Com KL Gautam by the host Unit presenting specially made Momento is quite praiseworthy. 

The task is to keep hopes alive and work dedicatedly to achieve the goals set.

Once again, KUDOS to Com Subhash Pandey and his team!

A Corrigendum

Inadvertently, name of Commercial Audit Staff Association, MABII, Kolkata was left out from the list of Units that attended the CWC meeting at Allahabad on 17-18-19 August 2019, though the Unit was mentioned in the list of participants in the discussion (Circular 19). Kindly add Commercial audit Staff Association, MAB II in the list of participants in the CWC. That will take the total number of Units that attended the CWC meeting at Allahabad to 39.

The error is regretted.

With greetings,
Yours fraternally

                                PRESENTATATION BY Shri URMILESH

On the second day of the CWC, i.e. on 18th August 2017, Shri Urmilesh, former CEO of Rajya Sabha TV made a very insightful and thought provoking presentation on “Governance and the Media”

Moving from the current scenario to the post Independence days and back, covering the period in between, Shri Urmilesh presented a true picture of the current day India where the media hide facts and news than reveal them. He very convincingly covered various social movements, its suppression from the public eye by the media and its relevance in the current day India.

FELICITATION OF LEADERS AND CADRES

The leaders of fraternal organisations, leaders and activists of host unit were felicitated after the closure of the Subject Committee meeting. Mementos were presented to each of them by Coms. MS Raja, Secretary General, Tapas Bose, president and KL Gautam, Member, NC/JCM.

MUSICAL EXTRAVAGANZA

The delegates and observers as well as the guests were entertained by musical extravaganza organised by the Reception Committee, in the closing hours of the last day of the CWC meeting i.e., 19th August 2017. It enthralled all, soothing the serious tempo that was prevalent till then.
