CHENNAI: In an effort to spread awareness about the services rendered by the public sector, and the need to keep them alive as privatising them would affect the lives of the people, the All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC) recently conducted a campaign titled ‘Save the Public Sector’.
The members held a ‘kala jatha’ (the march of art) and screened a short film directed by Bharathi Krishnakumar to spread awareness on the services rendered by the public sector.
Speaking at the launch awhile ago, AIBOC president D Thomas Franco Rajendra Dev explained the importance of public sector for national development and the necessity to retain its identity. Leaders from various unions representing public sector employees were also present.
The march that began its journey at the end of January has since been performing at three choice venues at every stop - a school, a college and a public space - in order to reach across age groups. Most recently, a grand finale of the programme was held in Chennai, attended by R Sekaran, AIBOC State secretary.
