CPM urged TG workers to be ready for larger agitation on wage hike

CPM Mirik convener Kismat Tamang
CPM Mirik convener and party worker union’s Tharbu TG general secretary Kismat Tamang has called on a larger movement and has urged the TG workers to be ready for agitation similar to the scale of Margaret Hope agitation in 1955. “TG workers have been discriminated and left out since decades and the situation have further deteriorated, with workers even having second thoughts about celebrating big festivities like dashera and diwali,” Tamang lamented.
He also called on all general public, students, educated individuals and intellectuals to take part in the movement to help the TG workers get the wages they deserve. Citing the example of gate meetings and agitation conducted by 21 TG worker unions from Hills, Dooars and Terai recently, Tamang said such unified stand against the TG owners and government is essential in the current situation. “If we fight for the cause in a unified way, everything can be achieved,” he observed.
Tamang also urged the TMC-lead worker union INTTUC to work for the benefit of the workers if it is truly a union meant for their welfare. “If INTTUC is against the rights of the workers, it does not have the right to call itself a worker union,” Tamang stressed.(EOIC)
