The tea-estate labourers and workers who are always being ignored and overlooked from many decades by various governments and controlling bodies had seen the ray of hope after the establishment of BJP-IPFT government in the 2018.
On Sunday, a big deal for all the tea garden workers and labourers of Tripura which has been made by the CM Biplab Kumar Deb got revealed in the press statement of Tripura Tea Board Chairman Santosh Saha at the conference hall of Bir Chandra State Library.
Quoting the tea garden workers he said, “We must be thankful to them for their unmatchable efforts and determination to their works.
In this corona situation also they are loyally carrying on their duties despite of several problems.
So, as a part of thanks giving the state government has decided to hike their monthly wage and salary. This would boost their working spirit and trust in the authorities.”
“Due to the crisis of coal and to tackle the existing situation, we have signed an agreement with TNGCL. The gas company has already started its work for expanding the pipeline to supply gas in our factories at Durgabari area and the work will be completed by the end of February next”, he added.
Saha said, “From the end of March or first week of April, the next processing season is set to begin. The supply of gas to these factories will help the growers in getting non-stop energy at a cheap rate”.
