Stone Crusher Workers Protest Monetary Demand

IMPHAL, Apr 29: Workers of stone crusher units staged a protest demonstration at Khonghampat today against unaffordable monetary demands served by UG groups.

The protest demonstration was participated by workers employed in stone crusher units located between Mantripukhri and Kanglatongbi including Potshangbam.

Altogether 14 different UG groups including some factions of KCP-MC served monetary demands to the Northern Valley Stone Crusher Owners’ Welfare Association ranging from Rs 3 lakhs to Rs 10 lakhs.

On account of these demands, all the stone crusher units have stopped working since April 24.
