Expressing deep concern over the deterioration in West Bengal`s industrial climate, the CPI-M Monday demanded that the state`s Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government initiate steps to reopen factories, jute mills and tea gardens which have closed down recently.
The Supreme Court on Friday directed
the government to take over the management of ailing tea
gardens across the country and to provide arrears and wages to
their workers living in a pitiable condition.
