AGARTALA, April 2 (TIWN): Brick field workers union under the banner of CITU organized a protest rally regarding their nine point charter of demands at Agartala, here on wednesday.

Speaking in the rally Member of Parliament Shankar Prasad Dutta called upon the working class to unitedly launch relentless struggles against the policies of the central government which is dipped upto neck in loot and corruption, besides paving way for widening of income inequalities, spiraling price rise, formidable growth of unemployment. He insisted to launch struggles to ensure a decent labour conditions and fair livelihood for every citizen of India.

There is a powerful clash between the working class and people on the one side, and the big bourgeoisie on the other, over the orientation of the economy. Should the economy be oriented as it is today with the sole motive of ensuring maximum profits for the Indian and foreign monopolies, through maximum exploitation and plunder? Or should it be reoriented so that it fulfills the growing needs of the people?

Side by side with this, a powerful clash is developing over the very question of democracy.

People are increasingly demanding that those who decide the fate of our country must be accountable to us, the voters.  People, are demanding a say in major decisions that affect our lives, our livelihood and our rights.  Those in positions of power are refusing to let go of their monopoly over the decision-making process, he mentioned.
