AGARTALA, Dec 29 (TIWN): When BJP Govt pitching high about massive economic growth and huge MGNREGA mandays, during timely media surveys, it has been come out that even though in data Govt showing mandays but the largest portion of people are deprive of MGNREGA works and at the same time suffering from pending wages. Talking to rickshaw driver, he said neither MGNREGA works nor anyother work was given, rather Govt has slashed numbers of MGNREGA works when business is already at the loss. A hawker selling food said that he opens shop for whole day but no business at all and there is as if no relief until death. A cobbler said, “Govt promised us to help us in various ways. It promised to help us in various means and also to set a company for us. But even after submitting all papers, nothing was done”.

A local cosmetics seller told TIWN, “The business is going well till the half of the month but after that no business at all……..earlier we used to earn everyday”.

The fast-food seller in hawkers corner said same.

A E-rickshaw driver said, “Day-night we are doing duties, but unable to manage our two times meals. Earlier one time works could earn Rs. 800 to Rs. 900. Now two times also Rs. 300. I am roaming for 3 hours. Till now earned Rs. 70. Just listened now, the Govt representatives are announcing to ban E-Rickshaw. What option we will have then except suicides ?”
