I received a telephone call the other day from one of the readers of this blog asking me as to what has happened in regard to –
- Pension issues in State Bank of India and
- Compassionate appointments in Banking industry
I explained to him in detail as to why there is no requisite outcome in regard to both the problems and that what are the reasons of delay. Initially he was polite and soft in his talks but he lost his cool when I told him that like others he too may have to wait till the anomalies and the problems in the matter are sorted out by the top channels in the Government and the banks through IBA (Indian Banks Association) besides Delhi High Court who have since transferred the issues relating to Pension to a new bench of judges. About compassionate appointment too I explained to him the scenario in detail including the very history of it right from Bank of Bengal days. Highly annoyed with what I told him politely, he got badly annoyed replying to me saying ‘I have nothing to do with all that you have said. I want results only and not false assurances. You leaders give assurances only like our Prime Minister Modi ji does. I think we should have a Morcha platform against our leaders and not the Government nor State Bank. Talks ended at this point and I felt aghast on how the people rate our efforts made indefatigably. The very question that still haunts my mind is after all there is a limit for every thing and so applies to patience on the part of the leaders too.
