As per reports, the protestors have a long term demand of increasing 20% of bonus to the tea workers of 2018-2019 year.
But it has been alleged that, despite they have been protesting for the fulfillment of their demand, but the Tea estate authority has not been responding at all to their protest. Today, the protesters started the protest from Barfalang Durga Temple and gave a memorandum about their needs and demands to the Tea Estate authority.
The protesters added that, if the authority will not listen and take initiative to give their bonus as soon as it possible, they will stand for greater protest in this regard.
It may be stated that, AATSA has been carried out such protest in various tea estates across the state taking the same demand of their bonus.
