Agartala October 6: The country will survive only if people survive. So the left is fighting for the people. Tripura Rubber Workers Union State Committee on Friday submitted a deputation to the Managing Director of TFDPC on the ten-point demand of rubber workers. Tripura Rubber Workers Union State Committee demanded increase in wages of rubber workers, reinstatement of retrenched workers, appointment of rubber workers in government jobs. Various rubber plantations under TFDPC have been illegally encroached upon.
No action is being taken in this case. Tripura Rubber Workers Union State Committee asked to consider and fulfill the demands immediately. CITU State Committee State President Manik De said after watching the speech, BJP has passed the Forest Act to give opportunity to its close ones. So that BJP cronies can absorb everything. The goal of this government is to evict the poor people and hand over the country to BJP cronies. And the workers are in the field to come out of this situation. Still, Manik Dey opined that along with the workers, the farmers should also come to the field. He also said that people are seething with anger against this BJP government in the country. People want relief from this government. Because the government has reduced the wages of the workers, and the price of daily necessities in the market is increasing abnormally. The goods that are supposed to be provided to the people through the ration shops are not matching. As a result people are now suffering from starvation. So people are now deciding to stop the movement, he said. CITU general secretary Shankar Prasad Dutta was also present in the protest program organized on this day. He also criticized the government and said that the price of rubber is decreasing day by day. The government expressed the opinion that it is necessary to give importance to this.
