The Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Monday urged the government and authorities concerned to provide immediate payment of all wages in arrear to Tuba Group workers.
If the payment is not made immediately, the party would wage movement to relise the demands of the Tuba Gropu workers, BNP joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said at a press conference at the party’s central office in the city.
He said that the families of Tuba Group workers, now on fast unto death for the pauyment of arrears, were starving as the workers were not being paid wages.
The protesting apparel workers of Tuba Group on Sunday rejected Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association’s offer to pay two months’ wages and vowed to continue their protests until all their dues and festival allowance were cleared.
Rizvi said that the government planned to implement one-party rule of BKSAL in the second phase and that was why they were trying to gag media.
