The all India Trade Union congress (AITUC) has demanded immediate arrest and strict action against the culprits who stabbed a worker on the Bahadarke Road. Addressing a rally of thousands of workers today at the Bahadarke Road today Com. D P Maur- general Secretary Joint Council of Trade Unions Ludhiana said that the law and order situation is very bad in the city and maximum brunt of the situation is to be borne buy t he poor workers who have to go for duty in shifts at any time of the day or night. The police has failed in its duty to provide security to the citizens particularly the workers.  Not only that the labour laws are flouted with impunity and the poor workers do not get their dues or health or other social security benefits. Dr Arun Mitra- Asssistant Secretary of the Communist Party of India (CPI) demanded that there should be 24 hour police patrolling in the area which should not remain just on the main road but in the street and  mohallas. The workers should be issued identity card by the employers so as to avoid harassment by the police while checking. Com Kuldip singh Binder- member district council of the  CPI said that if the culprits are not arrested by tomorrow the agitation will be intensified. Com Feroze Master – General Secretary of the Hosiery workers union said that the workers of the area would not take rest till the culprits are taken to task. Com Shafiq also addressed the rally and appealed to workers to continue their peaceful agitation for security, social security benefits and implementation of labour laws in letter and spirit.
