If an overall overwhelming a response by way of emails, comments, likes and ranks to what has been highlighted in the earlier posts relating to confrontation between State Bank’s top management and the officers federation/ unions is an indication, the movement so launched is gaining much of a momentum getting fully geared up to take the challenge to their existence by the Chairman to its logical end. The veterans and stalwarts like T.N. Goel, ex President of Officers Federation, and a few others are taking due interest throwing their weight in the matter, and this is significant from overall solidarity point of view. The moot point is that the Bank’s top management has threatened the very status and existence of the Federation by questioning their most legitimate a right to stage a peaceful demonstration even during off time. The move just can’t be brushed aside by any one alleging that this relates to any individual or individuals. The Chairman, say the federation’s spokesmen, has lost all decency and is behaving like a ruffian vomiting out his ill conceived hatred against federation’s membership as a community. Besides talking rude with a threatening gesture, he uses unwanted remarks against the leadership, they say. Management might be having their own issues to settle, and so do the office bearers of the federation, but this should be for them and them alone to find out a via media to clinch them amicably. Resorting to use of the channels from outside is neither in the interest of the Bank nor even that of the officers.
