Tea Workers Stage Road Blockade in Bokakhat


The tea workers in Bihora at Bokakhat have staged a road blockade demanding a 20% bonus instead of 8.33 percent which the government announced earlier this month.

Various political and non-political organizations urged the tea industry as well as the state government to pay the maximum 20% puja bonus to the workers.

The organizations said that these workers are already deprived from getting their required amount and reducing the puja bonus is a sheer deprivation from getting their amount.

The government and the tea garden owners should therefore give them the actual bonus which they are getting.

The tea labourers have blocked the road in protest against the government and demanded to provide them 20% bonus.

The communication in the area has been interrupted due to the road blockade programme.
