DIBRUGARH, March 18 - The plantation workers of the Assam Company India Limited (ACIL) owned Thanai tea estate yesterday gheraoed the office of the garden manager in protest against the failure of the management in paying the fortnightly wages, leave pay and non-release of regular rations for more than a month.

Around 300 workers led by their leaders � president Dewan Kishan and secretary David Proja staged a demonstration for almost two hours in the morning. The Assam Tea Tribes Students� Association leaders of Rohmoria unit Samir Proja and Pran Singh Kishan, ATTSA sports secretary of Lahoal Mun Koiree and Annand Koiree, a representative of the Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha of Dibrugarh branch too had joined the demonstration.

The management reportedly sought a week�s time to clear all the dues including the rations. The workers and their leaders, however warned that agitation will resume if the management failed to keep its word within seven days.

It needs to be mentioned here that the fate of the workers in other 13 tea gardens of Assam Company India Limited is the same. The other gardens of the ACIL are Digulturrung, Dinjan, Rungagora, Nudwa, Thanai, Hazelbank, Maijan, Greenwood, Khoomtaie, Borborooah, Doomur Dullung, Kandoli, Kotalgoorie, Hajua Mohokutie and Oakland tea estates. The workers in these gardens have not received their wages, rations and other benefits for more than a month.

ATTSA leader Mun Koiree said that the school children have started working as daily labourers as they have nothing to eat.

�It is pathetic that the students are compelled to work in nearby areas to support their parents. The workers and their children are really going through a phase of agony,� said Koiree.
