A new tea trade union came up in the hills on Sunday as Ajoy Edwards, who broke away from the GNLF leader to form his own Hamro Party, and his associates announced the party’s frontal outfit for workers of north Bengal's brew belt.
At a public meeting near Chowrasta in Darjeeling town, Edwards and some other leaders announced the launch of Hamro Hill Terai Dooars Chiyabari Sramik Sangh. Workers from some 60 tea estates were present at the meeting, they claimed.
In the hills, almost all regional parties have their trade union fronts.
