Submitted by admin on Tue, 2017-07-18 16:52
IT and ITES sector is not only one of the major drivers of the Indian economy but is also a sector which directly employs millions of working people. These working people are under severe attack in recent times with a very large number already thrown out and a huge number experiencing that threat. These working people are completely disempowered and even their fundamental rights and human rights are routinely violated. Lok Raj Sangathan feels that it is extremely important to assist them in their struggle in defense of their rights, and that is why it is actively doing so. As a part of this work Lok Raj Sangathan worked with the Forum for IT Employees (FITE) activists of Pune towards organizing meeting on 8th July ’17.

They say about 20 workers, carrying out maintenance in the nearby school, also died.

The sugarcane farmers in Maharashtra are facing great hardship due to non-payment of dues by the sugar mills. According to the 1966 Sugar control order of the Maharashtra government, mills are required to pay the fair and remunerative prices (FRP) to the sugarcane farmers from whom they obtain their sugarcane supplies within 14 days. Failing this payment mills could lose their assets. The FRP is decided each year by the Central government and stands at Rs. 2,200 per tonne this year.
