DIBRUGARH, Jan 28 � The All Adivasi Students� Association of Assam (AASAA) today warned the Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha (ACMS) for going soft on the issue of wage hike of the plantation workers in the State in its alleged tacit attempt to broker a deal with the planters� body.

The AASAA said that the ACMS leaders cannot trample the popular wage hike demand of the workers as each of the office-bearers of the trade union was living off the financial contributions from the workers. �The trade union must serve the interest of the workers and not the planters,� Raphael Kujur, AASAA president said at a press conference at the Laxminath Bezbarua Bhawan here today.

Criticising the ACMS for constantly ignoring implementation of the stipulated minimum wage in the State�s plantations during its earlier sittings with the Consultative Committee of Planters� Association (CCPA), the AASAA leader expressed doubts whether the ACMS would really negotiate this time for a satisfactory hike in the wages of the plantation workers.
