Sanitation Workers Movement in Bishnupur, Bengal

For a long while, the sanitation workers of Bishnupur Municipality are being deprived of payment of their ad-hoc bonus. Last year, the West Bengal government announced an ad-hoc bonus of rupees 4500. However, the workers actually received only rupees 1,200 in hand. To avail the full amount of the bonus this year, 'Bishnupur Pourasabha Sangrami Sromik Karmachari Union' decided to organize a powerful protest.
