December 11 – K.G.BOSE DAY
Comrade K.G.Bose was one of the most inspiring leaders of our times in the Central Government and P&T Employees’ Movement. His speciality rests on the fact that he never hesitated to take up the ideological fight against any wrong concepts in the movement. He strived to organize the P&T masses in the struggle line in order to achieve many impossible things. In fact it was K.G.Bose among some top leaders of eastern India who successfully campaigned amongst the Group C employees to join the strike call issued by Comrade Dalvi for the historic 20 days Postman Strike in 1946. When the other employees of the P&T were simply watching the nationwide strike of Postman and Group D, in the eastern parts of the country including West Bengal the entire movement of P&T rallied to make the strike a united one. The role played by Comrade K.G.Bose in that endeavour speaks volumes about his calibre. Later when the “12th July movement” was founded to launch the united movement of Central and State Government and all Public Sector and Private Sector employees in West Bengal by some leading pioneers of trade union movement, we could find Comrade K.G.Bose in the lead. His beautiful arguments before the Third Central Pay Commission highlighting our issues can never be forgotten. His sagacity and in-depth knowledge were the prime reasons when he was appointed later as the Pay Commission Chairman by the West Bengal Government!
