1,500 workers stage protest at Rampur hydel project



Shimla: About 1,500 workers executing the 420 MW Rampur hyrdro-electric power project today staged protests to press for their pending demands. Boycotting operations for the last two days, workers today organized four separate demonstrations at Avori, Bayal, Jakhari and Uni project sites.

CITU state president Jagat Ram, who led the demonstrations, told HimVani that workers engaged in the Rampur project had been demanding carriage allowance, dust and project allowance since 2009 but their demands have not been met. He threatened that the ongoing agitation would be intensified if authorities fail to act.
