AGARTALA, Sep 13 (TIWN): Tripura CM has recently said, “Tripura Govt has made impossible things as possible, However, CM’s claim can’t be denied as with a shock note Jute Mill employees, pensioners hitting Tripura Govt said, “It’s only possible by Tripura Govt to unfollow Court’s order”. It has been long 1 year that Tripura Govt is not paying the unpaid wages to the employees and pensioner even after Supreme Court's verdict. Thus, issuing this long deprivation, the employees and pensioners will finally go for enmass protest from Oct-9. In this regard a protest was held at Hapania's Jute Mill factory on Tuesday.

The strike may hit the left front govt ahead of the Assembly poll-2018 as the agitators claimed for not withdrawing the strike till their pending wages are cleared and govt hike their salaries as per the Supreme Court’s order. After 1 year of Supreme Court's order Tripura Govt is showing no interest to clear the pending wages. In this regard, the employees may also file a case against Tripura Govt for offending the Court's verdict, if it delays any more to pay their salaries. According to Jute Mill employees, "it’s only possible for Tripura Govt to ignore Supreme Court’s verdict which has been occupied the ruling position since 24 yrs constantly in a state".

With a surprise when challenging HC’s order had become already a trend of Tripura Govt, it has developed quality to unfollow Supreme Court’s orders too—the Jute mill case is an example of this. 

It shows how CPI-M Govt is much capable to run its nepotism even against the Highest Court’s order.Jute Mill which was destroyed due to too much party's interference, had been collapsed from the root; but a section of officers filed a case in High Court against their irregular salaries, low pay scales.

High Court's verdict was in support of those Jute Mill employees and High Court asked state govt to provide those officers their pending wages like other state govt employees.

Challenging HC’s order Tripura Govt knocked the door of Supreme Court but also same face loss was received by Tripura Govt there.After that Jute Mill Officers held a press meet and told media about their historical winning. But Manik Govt till day has not provided them their deserved salaries.

However, when the officers are not getting their deserve wages, the other CPI-M backed employees are demanding state govt level salaries and Tripura Govt said it is still thinking about 'what to do...'. But one year of the verdict at SC, Tripura Govt has no desire to give the salary of the officers.
