Talking to reporters in Guwahati on Saturday, CPI(M) politburo member Sitaram Yechury said that the government will reverse the scheme only to safegaurd the interest of the owners.

He said, "Subsidised foods is a part of wage agreement between workers and owners. It was a tripartite pact between workers, owners and government. If it so happens, a huge burden is imposed on workers.”
