Another drama by Shivgopal Mishra and Confederation?Doubting a mutual understanding between them.The confederation had already announced agitational programmes.If ShivGopal Mishra announce a strike,what will be the stand of Confederation?Will it join the strike by NJCA?Or will the Confederation will go on strike separately as per the present decision?What is the stand of NJCA and Shivgopal Mishra on the agitations announced by the Confederation?What is the stand of Confederation about the letter of Shivgopal Mishra to the Finance Minister?If the Confederation supports the contents of the letter of Shivgopal Mishra,the rank and file of Confederation should definitely get clarification about why the Confederation,an affiliate of NJCA is planning agitations separately.A Thousand questions like these may be asked.But,nothing will be answered by the NJCA and the Confederation.The letter of Shivgopal Mishra to the Finance Minister may be a part of the drama planned by Shivgopal Mishra and the Confederation through a mutual agreement.The drama will continue....
