AASAA to begin stir from tomorrow

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 19 � The All Adivasi Students' Association of Assam (AASAA) has announced a series of agitational programmes from March 21 which include gherao of the houses of MLAs, MPs and Ministers across the State in protest against the State Government's �indifferent attitude� towards the tea garden workers.

The AASAA has been demanding a wage of Rs 330 for the tea garden labourers.

AASAA president Raphael Kujur said that the Government in spite of assuring implementation of new and revised wages had not yet come up with any notification in this regard.

The wage advisory committee constituted and headed by MGVK Bhanu is just an eye-wash, he added.

Kujur came down heavily on those who made it to the Assembly and the Parliament representing the Adivasi community, saying that �they have cheated us over and over again by not raising the issues of the Adivasi population in the right forum.�

�On March 21, we will gherao the branch offices of the Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha and also burn the latest wage agreement papers. The next day, effigies of both the Chief Minister and MGVK Bhanu will be burnt,� Kujur said.

He further said that the protesters would also gherao the houses of MLAs, MPs and Ministers on March 24, while on March 27 the head office of Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha would be gheraoed in Dibrugarh.
