Guwahati, May 30 (TIWN) Opposition Congress claimed that due to the recent decision of the BJP government in Assam, each tea worker would lose Rs 2,70,000 in five years.

Assam Pradesh Congress in a statement said that the Assam Government's recent announcement of the increase of daily wage of tea workers to Rs 205 is much below the BJP's 2016 electoral promise of wage increase to Rs 351.  "The recent wage increase by Rs 38 is also less than the (previous) Sonowal government's notification which had added Rs 50 just before elections and increased it to Rs 217," the statement said.
