Com P. Gangadhara Rao, Dy.GS was continuously taking efforts to meet Shri Ananthakumar, Hon. Minister for Chemicals & Fertilizers either at Bangalore or at New Delhi. He, alongwith Com. R Changappa, Karnataka Circle Secretary, met Shri Ananthakumar in Bangalore on 26-3-2015. The Minister made over the case of 78.2 to his Special Officer saying that “it is the most genuine case.”
The relentless efforts made by Com. Gangadhara Rao in continuation of the Bangalore meeting had its desired result. Ultimately a meeting was fixed with Shri Ananthakumar in his New Delhi office on 5-4-2016.
Com R L Kapoor, our Legal Committee Member was requested over phone to go to the Minister's office at the appointed time which he did. RLK met Hon. Minister Shri Ananthakumar and apprised him the present position on 78.2.
Immediately Shri Ananthakumar contacted Shri J S Deepak IAS, Secretary, Telecom and fixed a meeting with him at 6 PM on the same day itself. Accordingly Kapoor met Secretary, Telecom at about 6.30 PM and explained the demand. After hearing the explanation, Secretary, Telecom informed that he is yet to go through the file. When Kapooorji insisted, Secretary, Telecom asked him to contact exactly after a week's time.
Nobody else could meet the new Secretary, Telecom so far. It is possible for us only due to the effective intervention of Shri Ananthakumar once again and we are thankful to him. We hope that the Secretary, Telecom would clear it within a week without any further hurdles.
Let us hope that the indefinite waiting for justice will end now.
