On July 30, an online hearing was held in the Supreme Court on the petition filed by the Ujjain Mill Majdoor Sangh in the Binod Mill case, in which the apex court laid the condition of depositing 10 % of the outstanding amount in 4 weeks and ordered the government to pay the pending dues of labourers within 6 months.
Advocate Dheeraj Singh Panwar (Indore) and Naveen Prakash (New Delhi) shared this information after holding a discussion with Mill Mazdoor Sangh president Omprakash Bhadauria, treasurer Santosh Sunhare, Harishankar Sharma and advocate Bhupendra Singh Kushwaha over phone.
They said, the government has been given an additional 6 months from July 30, within which the government will have to make full payment to the workers and taking cognisance of the protest of labour union, the Supreme Court ordered the state government to deposit 10 % of the pending dues of labourers. The government deposited the amount on Thursday.
Bhadauria has demanded from the government that the poor labourers should be provided relief by depositing the remaining at the earliest.
