Management shuts down Raimatanga and Kalchini tea garden in Dooars

The Buxa Dooars Tea Co.Ltd Management has shut down Raimatanga and Kalchini Tea Gardens from today onwards, leaving over 3200 workers and their families in a lurch.

The Management did not inform the workers anything till yesterday, and like everyday when the workers arrived to report to the work, the factories had been shut and a notice hanged on the gates.

Other than itself, the management has blamed everyone from the Government to the workers and the market forces for shutting the tea gardens down.

Once again the lives of 3200 workers and their families faces an uncertain future... how long will such exploitation of our brothers and sisters in the tea gardens continue??
