Restore ration for tea workers

Now Dispur writes to Delhi to restore ration to the tea gardens.   In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi urged the Centre to reconsider the move.

Gogoi told the Prime Minister that the move would brew law and order trouble in the teagarden areas a couple of days after Assembly Speaker Pranab Kumar Gogoi said it on the floor in the winter session.

According to the chief minister, the scheme has been benefitting over 20 lakh tea workers where the Governments provides APL rice and atta to the tea industry at subsidized rate. The management of the gardens, in turn, provide the same to the workers at the rate of 50 to 55 paisa per kilogram.
