KHOWAI, March 23 (TIWN): 480 Rega workers of Sikaribari ADC Village at Tulasikhar Block of Khowai had locked the bank workers of Co-operative Bank in protest of their pending wage on Monday .However, the role of police in this regard seems to be suspicious in this regard.Sources informed that, the 480 Rega workers of Tulasikhar had complted their work for 51 dyas. But at the time of payment it is seen that they are not providing the due wage. After passing many days, today they went to the bank, and saw that only the wage of 10 -12 days work have been allotted to their account.Immidiately as a mark of protest, they had locked the bank employees inside for a duration of 3hrs between 11a.m to 2.00 p.m. After passing 3hrs, Champahawar Police under the leadership of sub-Inspector had gone to the spot and unlocked the bank employees. But the role of police in this regard seems to be suspicious as because the distance of the block with the police. Howver, the Rega workers told that if their payment is not finalized today, then they will again lock the bank. It is to be mention that the work of bank is hampered due to the protest.

It is mentionable here that the state Tripura is already under the limelight of massive corruptions and scams in MGNREGA fund. And besides, such an irregularities in REGA wages under almost every Panchayats of the state are often coming out highlighted where the workers are being deprived at large and often they show a protest infront of the panchayats.

But the administration has been playing a role of a silent spectator, with the state govt. leaving no stones unturned.
