रोहा, रायगड.
NFTE रायगडचे जिल्हा अधिवेशन दि.25 जानेवारी 2017 रोजी रोहा, जिल्हा रायगड येथे उत्साहात पार पडले. अध्यक्षस्थानी काॅ.एन.एल. कदम हे होते तर  सर्कल सेक्रेटरी काॅ. रंजन दाणी आणि कामगार चळवळीचे अभ्यासक, लेखक, विचारवंत
काॅ. विष्णू ढोबळे प्रमुख पाहुणे म्हणून उपस्थित होते.
वर्षभरात दिवंगत झालेल्या सैनिक, शेतकरी व कामगारांना श्रद्धांजली वाहून अधिवेशनाची सुरूवात झाली. भूतपूर्व सर्कल सेक्रेटरी काॅ. रमेशजी आयरे यांचा सत्कार करण्यात आला.
काॅ. ढोबळेनी कमगार विश्वासमोरची नवी आव्हाने आणि त्याना सामोरे जाण्याची तयारी यांबाबत तपशीलवार मार्गदर्शन केले. काॅ. रंजन दाणीनी कणखर शब्दात प्रशासनाचे वाभाडे काढले. आम्हाला साधने व संसाधने उपलब्ध करून द्या मग आमच्यासमोर कोण टिकतो ते आम्ही पाहू असे खुले आव्हान त्यानी सरकार आणि प्रशासनाला दिले. भरघोस पगार, नोकरीची हमी आणि जगातली सर्वोत्तम पेन्शन ही गुप्ताजींची देन आहे
