General members of our association as well as others don't want to strike even for a day. If you people think you will thrust a strike upon the postal employees without caring a bit about their sentiment, you are doing a big mistake. It is the grass root members and workers of this association who are allowing you to continue as the association office bearer for the benefit of us and not for thrusting your whims on us. Once again you are requested to withdraw this unjustified strike call, and don't fall into the trap of crony organisation of communists who are conspiring to destabilize the govt. by creating trouble using their affiliates for narrow political gains.

We don't want strike....although these 17 demands are justified, going to the strike for these demands is a bit irrational....even the demands like the matter of system assistants get diluted in these clutter of issues .
