Slowdown hits daily workers’ lives in Tripura, No work in Urban bodies amid compromise with ‘Lower’ wages : Demands of workers abnormally downed in BJP era
AGARTALA, Dec 16 (TIWN): Along with MGNREGA works' massive downs under the ruling BJP Govt in Tripura, worklessness situations have hit the daily earners’ lives here. As slowdown affected the common men and businessmen, so workers’ demands are too at low, witnesses a massive decrease of demand of daily workers by households and businessmen. TIWN has been surveying the economic situations of the state focusing in the capital town but so far only frustrations and distresses were reported. Two markets were surveyed today 1) Battala, 2) Durga Chowmuhani where around hundreds of workers were seen didn’t get any work whereas even before 2 years, the situation was completely different for the state. On that time, workers demands were high, wages were high and also MGNREGA and other Govt works were given at a large number. Before 2 years, not only workers’ wages were higher than now and a competition was seen between the people to catch the workers but today workers are in wait hours after hours but demand of workers heavily downed.
