There was a lot of media publicity about the meeting held in the PMO yesterday, regarding the revival of BSNL and MTNL. The meeting has taken place and the new Cabinet Secretary, Shri P.K. Mishra, has presided over it. According to informed sources, nothing positive has emerged in yesterday’s PMO meeting. In fact, questions have been raised in that meeting, whether the revival of BSNL is necessary and if so, whether it is possible to revive BSNL? Similar negative questions have been raised in yesterday’s meeting and no meaningful decision has been taken. We have come to know that yesterday’s PMO meeting has appointed a Committee consisting of 4 / 5 Secretaries. This Committee will advise whether revival of BSNL is necessary, and if so, whether it is possible?
