Bongaigaon, June 15: “Being a tea stall owner and being a Prime Minister of a country is not same. If Modiji thinks that he can run this Government like a tea stall owner then this would be a tremendous mistake by him,” said Manoj Sing AGS, NFRMU on Friday in Rangiya. He said this today in protest meeting held in Rangiya against ‘anti employee’ deliberation of Railway administration organized by NF Railway Mazdoor Union. He said that this Government was continuously making policy against the labour class people which would never be tolerated.

NFRMU here protested against recent order of Railway administration of Rangiya to increase duty time of Railway gatemen from 8 hours to 12 hours. “This is beyond human capacity and it affects safety of Railway. We warn the Railway administration not to play with the life of the people,” he said.
