Agartala, December 06: Following the recent protests by Indian food warehouse workers in Dharmanagar, accusations have surfaced, claiming an external group is attempting to disrupt the established work culture. In response to the workers’ protest, Labour Sardars Rupu Nandi, alias Rajat Nandi, and Deepak Kumar Sinha from Gang No. 1 addressed the media at a press conference held at the Dharmanagar Press Club on Wednesday.

The labour leaders asserted that an external cabal is deliberately sowing discord among the workers, aiming to undermine the work culture of Indian food warehouses. They emphasized that the primary motive behind this interference, especially with the Lok Sabha elections approaching, is to create chaos among the workers. The leaders presented the journalists with the workers’ agreement letter with the contractor, clearly stipulating the payment rate of four rupees and eighty paise per bag.

Addressing concerns related to attendance, the leaders provided documentary evidence highlighting the confusion and explained that workers who received advance payments are experiencing deductions, affecting their provident fund accumulation. The leaders argued that external elements, by exploiting discrepancies in workers’ Aadhaar cards, are causing delays in provident fund disbursements.

Labour leaders condemned attempts to tarnish the image of Labour leaders, leveraging the educational qualifications of the workers. They pointed out that Dharmanagar workers receive a higher wage of four rupees and eighty paise per sack compared to other locations within Tripura, a result of the dedicated efforts of the organization’s workers.

Workers vehemently declared their commitment to preserving the work culture of Indian food warehouses, pledging not to allow external forces to disrupt it. The leaders further announced that the principal contractor would visit Dharmanagar soon, addressing concerns over pending dues, and resolving the matter for those who resorted to legal action in the Tripura High Court.
