ASCSS stages protest

By STAFF Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, March 25 � The Assam Sangrami Chah Shramik Sangha (ASCSS) has condemned the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for failing to nab the alleged killers of CPI (ML) and affiliated ASCSS leader Gangaram Kaul.

�The fact that CBI has refused to question MLA of Chabua LAC, Raju Sahu and several others who have been named in the FIR, is condemnable,� said CPI (ML) leader, Bolindra Saikia. Two years have passed since his murder but no headway has been made by the CBI, he said. The Sangha has demanded that CBI expedite the investigation and take steps to arrest MLA Raju Sahu and others who are named in the FIRs.

The Assam Sangrami Chah Shramik Sangha has also demanded that government invalidate the wage agreement signed recently between Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha and Consultative Committee of Planters Association, stating that the agreement is irrational and unacceptable. The Sangha has demanded Rs 330 as the daily wage of the workers in the tea gardens as also paid holiday for all Sundays.

The ASCSS had taken out a protest rally in the town from the old Dibrugarh Railway Station and later submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister through the Assistant Labour Commissioner.
