The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the general election of 2014 had assured of Rs 18000 minimum monthly wages for the working class through a law but failed to implement it after coming to power, alleged Tripura CPI-M MP Sankar Prashad Datta.
He was addressing a gathering on the occasion of celebration of International Labour Day at Agartala on Wednesday.
Terming the present BJP government at the Centre as against the cause of the working class, peasantry and youth, Datta said that now again it is the appropriate time when the people of the country should get united to teach lesson to this anti-people government.
He also viewed that the present government is against the socio-economic development of the working class and which can easily be concluded from the various activities of the government.
Meanwhile, CPI-M politburo member and former chief minister of Tripura, Manik Sarkar said that forgetting their ideological difference opposition political parties and a section of the NDA is today against the BJP and got united on single agenda that for the better future of India this BJP should no more be allowed to be in power and run the country.
He also raised the issue of alleged massive booth capturing and rigging during the recently held election in Tripura West Parliamentary constituency and asked the people of the state to come out and raise their voice against all these.
