Comrades, to defeat the anti-worker and anti-people policies of the NDA Government, maximum unity of the working class is the need of the hour.  Only through a united struggle of the entire working class of the country these policies can be halted.  Confederation being an organisation which is in the forefront of all struggles against the neo-liberal policies and also being the one and the only organisation which is continuously fighting for the demands of the entire Central Govt. employees and pensioners, has an added responsibility to make the struggle of the entire working class a grand success.  An alternative policy is possible and only the working class can lead the struggle for an alternative policy and save the workers and also the common people of our country.  Let us be proud to be part of such a patriotic struggle.
2.      Towards 50th Anniversary of 1968 September 19th historic one day strike of Central Government Employees:
2018 September 19th (next year) is the 50th anniversary of 1968 September 19th strike.  Before independence and after independence, the Central Government employees had conducted many strikes.  But 1968 September 19th strike is written in red letters in the history of Indian Working Class.  It is because that the strike had raised the demand for a scientific wage revision based on the Need Based Minimum Wage formula approved by the 15th Indian Labour Conference held in 1957.  Central Govt. employees fought for the demand of entire working class of India ie. Need Based Minimum Wage.  The ruling class of India understood that if the demand of the Central Govt. employees is accepted, all other section of the working class including those in private sector shall go on struggle for implementation of Need Based Minimum Wage to them also and ultimately it will result in changing their pro-capitalist economic policy itself, which they never want to change.  The ruling class let loose all destructive forces and repressive measures  at their command to crush the strike. The Cental Government employees had to pay a heavy price -seventeen (17)  comrades had been brutally murdered by the ruling class. In addition 40000 suspensions, 64000 termination notices, arrets, imprisionment, chargesheets , heavy punishments, transfers etc. Even today, the Central Government employees and other sections of the working class are on struggle path demanding  Need Based Minimum Wage.
              To make the begining of the 50th anniversary of the historic strike, this year’s  Martyrs day  on 19-09-2017 should be organised in a befitting manner at all places by hoisting flags, paying homage to martyrs etc. Before the 50th anniversary day on 2018 september 19th, seminars, honouring of those who are victiimseld in the 1968 september 19th strike etc may be organised at all important centres. The details of other programmes to be organised in connection with the 50th anniversary will be  decided in the next National Secretariat meeting of the confederation to be held at Mumbai on     10-01-2018.
