AGARTALA, Feb 25 (TIWN): Tripura left front union led by Minister Manik Dey has insulted Supreme Court on Saturday and expressed resentment over Jute Mill case's verdict at Supreme Court. Jute Mill factory business at Amtali, was declined due to extreme interference by left front. Source said that the Jute Mill factory had became almost a party office for CPI-M unions, which caused its destruction. Later the employees of Jut Mill faced hard times due to irregularity of wages as Jut Mill industry was almost died. But, a group of high officials filed a case at High Court regarding their irregular salaries, where Tripura Govt was defeated and the Finance Dept was ordered to pay them full wages at Central level. Challenging the High Court order, Tripura Govt knocked the door of Supreme Court but Supreme Court also found Tripura govt as guilty and asked the it to follow High Court's order. With a surprise, when the salary-issues are handled by the state govt fully CPI-M backed CITU held mass protest demanding same salary on Saturday. Tripura Urban Development Minister Manik Dey was present on that occasion and he became busy in Centre's criticism.

But what surprises is that CITU in the press release wrote : " 2016's November a section of officers and supervisors were felicitated by Supreme Court with equal salaries like other Govt undertaken officials, since 1996..but this has created much resentment among the other employees". However,  question raises, who gave the union right/ authority to  talk against the Supreme Court in a public rally ? 

Earlier Manik Sarkar insulted HC judicial system to hit the then Chief Justice Dipak Gupta just because he handled 10,323 case.

However, source said that Tripura Govt is presently under heavy pressure due to the other Jut Mill Employees demand and thus Manik Dey is trying to turn the ball against the Central Govt and Supreme Court.

It's worthy to mention here that Supreme Court ushered ray of hope for Tripura’s all deprived Govt employees when it ordered to re-compensate Jute Mill employees with 6 % interest since 1996.

However, it was a Historical Winning & what signified the case is that bad days for CPI-M has begun as already the most important case is pending at Supreme Court regarding all Govt employees which was ordered by High Court to fill up the Gap between central and state govt employees. Manik Got has appealed in Supreme Court against high court order and now the case is pending, but after the slap on Manik Sarkar’s Govt’s face has given by the Jut Mill workers now it’s almost assumed that the next case is also going to be lost and finally after SC’s order there will be no difference between State & Central Govt employees.

One day after the verdict,  addressing the press meet at Agartala Press Club this  TJMKM member Nakul Das said, “After a long struggle ultimately they have owned in the door of justice as the Jute Mill employees had been fighting for their own rights and benefits from the state’s Left Front government for several years and after knocking the doors of High Court and Supreme Court, ultimately they won the case in their favour”.

 But this has put the state govt under heavy pressure as other employees also demanding the same salary.
