Secy Genl. stated that acting on feedback from Pensioners Community BPS is now adding 4th “C” to its “C” road map of Communicate, Coordinate & Consolidate i.e.
Contribute : Let every superannuated person contribute wisdom, thoughts ,ideas, efforts, knowledge, experience and whatever she/he can conveniently afford including money to the common cause to make ‘3C’ “Road MAP” a Success and thus revised BPS Road Map for resolving issues of superannuated persons in the long term is now as follows:
1. Communicate: World has changed & is constantly changing we too need to change ourselves. Even developed countries have realized that moving alone is not possible anymore and have started communicating with other countries. Same is true for pensioners organizations instead of wasting time & energy in raising new or reviving dormant organizations we need to form strong conglomerate of existing live Federations and Associations. As main aspirations i.e. Financial, Social security & healthcare are common, this is possible. To achieve it communication is the basic tool . So communicate amongst yourself , with your members, affiliates, associates, MOU partners, with Civil Society , National / local leaders ,with Media and with the employees retiring in next six months. Spread awareness about, what pensioners did for the country & are still doing for the civil Society. Apprise Civil Society about their service conditions, entitlements as per Constitution, Supreme Court pronouncements. Empower Pensioners & Pensioners to be with information, knowledge & network to interconnect. Aggressively use Social Media & modern digital technology to interact among yourself & with the civil society to enable them to understand pensioners/family pensioner’s issues & the deficient areas. Emphasize that superannuated persons with their treasure of knowledge & experience are an asset to the Country & the Society which should be gainfully utilised.
2. Co ordinate: Coordinate not only to seek govt. support in deficient areas but to develop systems which may enable all of us to act as one family with mutual confidence, support and growing interdependence. Comrades, if we have to survive with dignity then such should be our system of mutual confidence, interdependence & coordination that none of us feel lonely &helpless.
Share information, technology and resources with Affiliates/Associates MOU partners/sister organizations &members .Coordinate and provide support to members, affiliates and associate associations. Coordinate & stand shoulder to shoulder with the administration & fellow citizens during National emergencies and natural calamities. Launch and participate in welfare activities such as organ donation for the good of civil society.
3. Consolidate: Inspire more & more pensioners/Associations/Federations to come together. Strive to bring all C.G; State, PSU, EPS95 pensioners/family pensioners together. Inspire sister organizations sign MOUs to jointly & severally struggle for resolving common issues. BPS, AIFPA,NFRP Palghat & AISCCON have been successfully wkg with such an agreement. I invite other like minded pensioners organizations to join. BPS today has over 16 lac audience on Social media platform, let us utilize the facility for pensioners' cause. We throw it open to all like minded organizations. Add more & more, friends, viewers & followers on Social media pages . Share pensioner's related posts as much as possible.
4.Contribute : Let every superannuated person contribute wisdom, thoughts ,ideas, efforts, knowledge, experience and whatever she/he can conveniently afford including money to the common cause to make ‘3C’ “Road MAP” a Success
The audience gave their approval by loud applaud & Cheers.
