BISWATH CHARIALI, Oct 15: The children of around 600 employees of Borgang Tea Estate in Biswath district staged a three-hour demonstration under the initiative of Asom Sangrami Chah Shramik Sangha on Saturday demanding basic amenities of livelihood such as food, clothes, education, medical health and salary of their parents.

A conflict had erupted between the magement and a section of the employees following which the magement declared lock-out in the tea garden on July 20. Though the Government of Assam had announced it illegal vide order no. GLR-127/2017/22A and asked to withdraw the lock out, the magement of the tea garden approached the Gauhati High Court against the government order and the whole matter is subjudice now. The sudden closure has allegedly made the life of the employees miserable and they have been forced to live a pathetic life during the last couple of months.
