AURANGABAD: Trade union Hind Mazdoor Sabha today announced to launch a massive agitation on the issue of problems being faced by labourers.
Hind Mazdoor Sabha secretary Nageshwar and joint coal wage agreement committee member Raghunandan Raghvan said here that countrywide awareness drive was presently on with the objective of protecting the interest of labourers.
They said the agitation was launched in months of October and November last year adding that Hind Mazdoor Sabha would launch a massive agitation at the national level, if necessary.
