AIRF General Secretary Mr. S.G. Mishra has expressed his thoughts about
“Dearness Allowance” announcements in media both Audio,
News papers and Video…

Check Price Rise not Dearness Allowance?
After announcement of 8% D.A. to Central Govt. employees,Few days back, great hue & cry as visible in the capitalist oriented media both Audio and Video. News papers started

criticizing grant of D.A. to employees. Capitalist well-wishers started
appearing on the Televisions condemning
the announcement with rhetoric of likely impact on prices and consequential
mismanagement of economy.

On this occasion some reputed T.V. channels also approached

me and asked about my reactions on the announcement of grant of 8% D.A. My
simple response was – “Although Price-rise is heavy, yet whatever has been given
by the Govt., is welcome”. Instantaneously burst the 2nd question “You are the
ardent well wisher of unorganized sector labour, will this consequential price
rise will not affect their lives?” I replied in affirmative but owing to this
phenomenon, why should Central Govt. Employees, Rail employees, State Govt.
employees who have fought for non-freezing of Dearness Allowance be denied their
hard fought right.

Media persons again asked me about the solution of this
problem. I replied that there exists only solution which is to check-the


Comrades, you are well aware that even after so much of
constant struggle “fair-wages” are a dream for Govt. employees only Dearness
Allowance are a source of some relief to employees and also a source of stomach
ache to capitalists. Govt. is helpless in controlling price-rise and capitalists
only show a lip-deep sympathy to unorganized labour sector. In fact their
empires are the product of labour exploitation by capitalists. They know it, 40%
citizenry of the country is deprived of even two times simple meal. Govt.
sponsored Commission headed by Sh. Arjun Sen Gupta’s reports that the earning
capacity of 40% people is less than Rs. 20/- per day. The statistics released by
Tendulkar Committee in respect of “Below Poverty Line” population has also
presented horrible condition for every thinker of the country, Central and State
Governments are in a fix.

We on our part have always been with unorganized sector
labours and wish them to make “Organized”, to free them from exploitation, to

implement Labour Laws for them and they should also be compensated with Dearness
Allowance at par with organized sector. In reality the actual enemies of
unorganized sector labour are those who are shedding
crocodile tears for them and have done
nothing but indulging in self-promotion
games constantly roaming in the corridors of power.

Friends ! We, on our part should not care for what these
sycophant’s state instead, we should intensify our struggle which is possible

only if we take these unorganized sector people with us. Perhaps this will be
the fittest tribute to our martyrs on coming May Day.
