Bathinda, October 8

Members of the Galla Mazdoor Union today protested at a grain market here, alleging they have been denied labour charges by the Cotton Corporation of India (CCI).

"A labour charge of Rs 29.50 per quintal was fixed for this year's procurement season. However, this is for the first time that the CCI has denied paying us for loading, weighing and unloading of cotton in mandis," said Mangat Rai, union president.

He said scores of labourers working in the mandis would be rendered jobless with no source of income. Union members met officials of the market committee and submitted a memorandum of demands to them. Senior commercial officer Harjit Singh said: "The CCI will give labour charges to contractors, who will pay the labourers working under them once the cotton clears the quality check and is ready to be sent to the factory." — TNS
