The Golaghat wing of the Assam Tea Majdoor Sangha launched a protest demanding 20% bonus on Durga Puja.
Tea labourers of 84 Tea Estates of Golaghat have all come together against the Tea Garden owners demanding their Puja Bonus after meeting at the office of the organisation.
The protestors stated that the profit or loss of the owners is nothing of their concern and as such they have to be paid their bonus.
Failure as such on the part of their owners has enraged the tea labourers, who receive only Rs. 115 as their daily wage, as the bonus is more of an emotion for them.
