DIBRUGARH: Tea laborers of Santi Tea Estate in Assam’s Dibrugarh locale on Monday started an endless dissent against acquiring of 22 bighas of the tea bequest by Oil India Limited (OIL) for the setting up of Oil fields.
The tea laborers of the Santi Tea Estate stopped their labor for a day and partook in the dissent to speak more loudly against the land securing process by OIL.
Assam Tea Tribe Students’ Association (ATTSA), Assam Chah Mazdoor Sangha(ACMS) were among other tea bodies that partook in the dissent.
The specialists holding postcards and standards partook in the dissent against the OIL.
“Oil India will gain 22 bighas of the Santi Tea Estate for setting up of Oil fields. We are against the land obtaining process in light of the fact that our laborers relied upon the tea garden. We can’t see our tea shrubberies to obliterate before our eyes,” said an ATTSA pioneer.
He said, “Assam’s economy has been to a great extent reliant upon the tea garden and the most common way of gaining tea garden land for modern purposes influences the economy. We have proactively perceived how Doloo Tea bequest tea brambles were annihilated for Greenfield air terminal.”
A lady nonconformist said, “The land obtaining cycle ought to be halted right away. Our occupation is to a great extent reliant upon the tea garden. As of now, a few bighas of tea garden land were obtained by Oil India for the setting up of oil fields. On the off chance that our interest isn’t met inside a specified time then we will escalate our development”.
“The administration of the tea garden and the OIL has gone into an arrangement. No one takes the assent of the tea laborers who are the foundation of the tea business. We firmly went against the move and request to stop such land gaining process,” an ACMS pioneer said.
