Bongaigaon, July 19: “Intending for reformation of labor law, the Modi government has targeted to abolish all basic rights of working class people and give power to industrialists for unconditiol recruitment and dismissal of workers. If the government succeeds to pass these anti-labour acts, then poor people will become poorer and rich people will become richer,” said Ramani Barman, president of North East Frontier Railway Mazdoor Union (NFRMU) on Sunday during State-level Workers’ Convention held at the District Library in Guwahati.
Ajay Dutta, president of Hind Mazdoor Sabha (HMS) said that the strike on September 2 would be a warning to the government to stop its anti-labour activities.
The convention was organized by several organization including INTUC, BMS, CITU, AITUC, HMS, AIUTUC, NFRMU and many others. It had been organized in connection with the call for countrywide strike called by all trade unions on September 2.
“If the government continues with its anti-labour stand, it will have to get ready to face a massive democratic agitation of all employees and working class people,” he said.
Several leaders including Asit Dutta, president CITU, Ashish Biswas, joint general decretary of NFRMU and many others were present in this meeting. Before this convention, HMS had taken out a mass rally from Guwahati railway station to the District Library.
