Recruitment scheme prompts hunger strike

A lovely little article in today's Hindu (link to journal not article).

92 Executives of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) in the Vellore Telecom District have started a 3 day hunger strike. The paper reports that:
Their demands included implementation of non-post-based time-bound promotion, weightage for past service (in the Department of Telecommunications/Department of Telegraph Services before the formation of BSNL) and ban on recruitment of management trainees.
