ACMS, ACKS to launch mass agitation

By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, April 18 � Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha (ACMS) and Assam Chah Karmachari Sangha (ACKS) have threatened to launch mass agitation if the State Government failed to revive the 15 sick tea gardens under Assam Tea Corporation.

The 15 tea estates owned by the state government is almost in a closure state, as its employees fail to draw the prescribed wages. The tea management also fails to provide the basic amenities like rations, drinking water, education to children and medical facilities among others. The tea estates under Assam Tea Corporation have also piled up for themselves huge liability by not depositing provident funds of the employees and not disbursing the provident fund and gratuity to its retired workers. Several retired employees also died without receiving their earned provident fund and gratuity, a joint press statement issued by the two organisations said.

ACMS and ACKS have jointly demanded that government take bold steps to revive the tea estates and clear all the dues of the employees. The two organisations which held meeting at ACMS office here today observed that the situation in the Assam government-owned tea estates was shameful to the present society.
