From A Correspondent
Shillong, Sept 26: The Bharat-Tibet Sahyog Manch (India-Tibet Cooperation Forum) on Tuesday alleged that Chi was responsible for trade unions’ activism in India, thereby making the workers lazy.
“The trade unions in India would often call for strikes, thereby hampering the working of industries,” said Rajneesh Tyagi, tiol general secretary of the Bharat-Tibet Sahyog Manch. However, Tyagi said that Chi having a single party system would not allow trade unions in their country and would force their workers to work 12 hours a day.
The general secretary said that in India with trade unionism flourishing, the workers have eight working hours.
“However, they come late to work, then there is the lunch break and filly they leave early from work,” Tyagi alleged.
He also urged Indians to boycott goods made in Chi. But when asked how the country would counter Chinese goods that are far cheaper than Indian products, Tyagi pointed out that goods coming from Chi were low-priced since cost of production is low due to uninterrupted power supply to the industries, while in India many of the manufacturing centres have to use diesel and petrol.
The general secretary of the Bharat-Tibet Sahyog Manch also pointed out that labour in Chi was cheap but in India it was not so.
The Manch also it made it clear that it would not part with an inch of land to the Chi in the wake of recent belligerence of the neighbouring country in Doklam and other areas.
To make its intention clear, the Bharat-Tibet Sahyog Manch is organising a march to Tawang in Aruchal Pradesh in November.
According to the forum, the march will begin from Guwahati on 19th November and culmite at Tawang on 24 November.
“The march is to show to the world that Aruchal Pradesh belongs to India and not Chi,” Tyagi said.
