Mamta in for the tea industry

The Trinamul Congress has decided to gain a toehold in the tea industry by taking up the distressed workers’ cause. And so, it would take the movement of the tea workers to the streets of Delhi.

According to the party’s Darjeeling district president Mr Gautam Deb today, the Trinamul Congress would be staging a hunger rally in Delhi with workers of closed and abandoned tea estates some time after the pujas to highlight the plight of the workers and their dependents.
He added that to keep the momentum of the movement on Miss Mamata Banerjee would visit the Dooars of north Bengal from 30 August to 1 September.

On 30 August she would address a mass meeting at the Mal Colony Maidan. On 31 August she would visit the closed Bharnobari and Kathalguri tea estates in the Dooars.

On 1 September she would attend a mass meeting at Sitalkuchi in Cooch Behar district to involve more people in the movement to save the tea plantations and its workers. The Trinamul has made arrangements to make Miss Mamata Banerjee’s visit to the Dooars a success.
