Bhubaneswar: Tension has now prevailed at the ESSAR Steel Plant at Paradip as workers started a cease-work agitation this morning, placing 15 demands before the company authorities.
Hundreds of workers are now sitting on a dharna in front of the main gate of the plant. Their demands include increase in wage, adequate safety measures and provision of PF and ESI.
Workers alleged that the authorities have made promises many times to fulfil their demands, but in vain. They threatened to intensify stir if demands are not met soon.
