No Light for Bidesh Mill Workers This Diwali


Jalpaiguri: As West Bengal along the rest of the country is all geared up for the celebration of Diwali, the festival of light, there seems to be darkness everywhere for the workers of Dhupguri Plywood Mill.

At least 500 workers of Bidesh Plywood Mill in Dhupguri area under Jalpaiguri in West Bengal have been rendered unemployed as the owners issued a suspension of work notice on Saturday.

The development came after a dispute broke out between the workers and the owners over the issue of bonus in Diwali. The closure has left the workers devastated.
