All these dignitaries made presentation of problems & demands of Retirees but the issue of leftover category, could find place very aggressively in the presentation of Mr. Acharaya K V President of AIBP& RC.

Fortunately, aggressive persuasion with Convener  Mr. Sarkar last week I was allowed to meeting today & make short presentation on the issue of Resignees. The copy of presentaion made in the meeting with UFBU Constituents is enclosed herewith.

All the UFBU constituents were receptive to our issues & Mr. Sarkar assured that Resignees will definitely get justice & UFBU is with them.
