Rejecting the hike in minimum wage announced by the State Government on October 6, the Left parties of the State are planning a joint movement against the decision.

CPM State secretary Janaradan Pati said the next course of action of the party will be decided at the state committee meeting here on October 18. The CPI has decided to launch a protest against the government decision from November 15.

CPI State secretary Dibakar Nayak said the party had instructed the district units to protest the government decision by organising rallies and public meetings.

Trade unions, affiliated to political parties, are contemplating to organise a State-level protest rally here.

The State Government increased the minimum wage from Rs 90 to Rs 126-a-day ignoring the demand of major trade unions of the State for a wage of Rs 334.
