Dear friends,

The judgment in my case decided by Delhi High Court, has come.

“The unauthorised absence of the respondent (Neeraj Bhushan), considering that he was not a habitual absentee and his absence was on account of the agitation that he was leading, could not be said to warrant such a severe punishment (of dismissal).” Thus ruled the High Court, while dismissing 7 of the 8 charges levelled by PTI.

But at the same time, the court was pleased not to order my reinstatement, as it tried to compensate me monetarily.

Friends, as you are aware, I battled in courts for 10 years, since 2003, first in labour court and then in the High Court. I will decide the course of action in some time, picking-joining threads from here-there.

Life must go on, in the meantime. Thank you for believing in me. One thing is sure, you will never find me lacking.

That I will not be there, does not bother me. What concerns me is, what will happen to you!

Best wishes.

  2. This is my proud privilege that I am very close to a person of such caliber, who never thinks negative in any manner.

    I feel this is your strength bhaiya.

    I know it very well that now-a-days there is no KABIRA who is ready to burn his own house. But you are an example, who leads the people near you from the heart.

    I feel you have not lost everything as the Supreme Court is there.
