Resist govt’s ‘anti-labour’ policies: Tarigami

Srinagar, May 01: State President Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Monday said the present dispensation at the Centre is trying to erode whatever achievement has been made by the working class.
“Whatever has been left is being snatched away from them. Harsh measures are being taken against the working class across the country instead of addressing their issues,” Tarigami said while addressing a rally here on the eve of International Labour Day.
He said the policies pursued by the government have resulted in job loss and the livelihood of the common people. “The working class has tremendous tasks in these challenging times to continue building broader possible unity to defend their natural resources and national assets. Job loss continues with many establishments. Union activities are dubbed as anti-national. People are harassed,” he said.
Tarigami, who is also the Central Committee Member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), extended “revolutionary greetings” to the working people who have been in continuous struggles to defend their rights and livelihood, a statement issued by CITU here said, adding that he also paid rich tributes to Chicago martyrs of 1886 and Zaldagar martyrs of 1865.
He said the scheme workers like Anganwadi workers, helpers and ASHAs are getting meagre incentives, and have been fighting for better remuneration or a fixed salary, a demand that has never been conceded so far.
“Mid-Day Meal workers, CPWs, MGNREGA employees, contractuals, HDF, construction workers, need-based, seasonal, casual labourers and daily wagers are neglected and their long-pending demands are not met. Daily wagers and casual labourers are awaiting their regularisation which is quite disappointing,” he said.
