DIBRUGARH, Nov 5 - The Chah Shramik Mukti Sangram Sammittee has resolved to launch a massive state-wide protest following refusal of the Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha (ACMS) to endorse the proposed wage of Rs 177.19 of the Wage Advisory Board. At present, a tea garden worker gets Rs 115 as daily wage.
In a press statement issued jointly by Murli Tanti and Muktinath Goala, president and general secretary, respectively, of Chah Shramik Mukti Sangram Sammittee have condemned the leaders of the ACMS for allegedly acting against the interest of the tea garden workers.
�It is surprising that the ACMS refused the wage of Rs 177.19 as proposed by the Wage Advisory Board recently,� the leaders said.
The Chah Shramik Mukti Sangram Sammittee also slammed the Chief Minister, Tarun Gogoi, for his indifference attitude towards the issue and demanded his resignation. The Sammittee alleged that the Congress was using the ACMS to exploit the tea garden workers.
