Itagar, Aug 23: Claiming that most of the people from its community are still engaged as bonded labourers in Kurung Kumey and Kra Daadi districts, the district unit of All Puroik Welfare Society (APWS) has urged the state government to help abolish the system in both the districts and to settle them in suitable location.

Members from APWS along with its district units of both Kurung Kumey and Kra-Daadi with GPMs and GBs conducted survey in various areas of both the districts recently and found out that 70 percent of its people are still engaged as bonded labourers in Kurung Kumey while in Kra-Daadi district the number is 60 percent. Health, hygiene and education sectors are in deplorable condition as there is suppression from carrying out any development schemes in these areas, the APWS added in a release.
