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!
