DOOMDOOMA: Against the press statement of the Consultative Committee of Plantation Association – Assam Interest (CCPA-AI) about its inability to pay 20 per cent bonus to its workers and employees this year before Durga Puja, Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha (ACMS) came out with a statement to reconsider the case and pay 20 per cent bonus like previous years  in order to maintain industrial peace as it was a highly emotive issue. Rupesh Goala, secretary of ACMS, said this in a press meet held at his Doomdooma branch office on Thursday. He further said that ACMS had requested the CCPA-AI, which represents five tea-planters’ associations, namely Assam Branch Indian Tea Association (ABITA), Assam Tea Planters Association (ATPA), Tea Association of India (TAI), Bhartiya Chah Parishad (BCP) and North- Eastern Tea Association (NETA), on July 8 this year to pay 20 per cent bonus to the tea workers to maintain peace and industrial harmony. Otherwise, it apprehends that it would give rise to labour unrest resulting in law-and-order situation as experienced about a decade back in the tea gardens of Assam.
