Guwahati, Sun, 10 Jan 2010 ANI

Guwahati, Jan 10 (ANI): The farmers' organisation in Assam blocked the Guwahati-Shillong highway to protest the killing of five coal labourers in Meghalaya last year.


The farmers' organisation, All Assam Shramik Krishak Kalyan Parishad (AASKKP), demanding security and justice, blocked the highway, creating chaos.


"They (farmers) used to go to Meghalaya for work. If they are treated like animals and eventually killed then who is going to listen to us? The media, central government has nothing to say in this matter. They are responsible," said president of AASKKP Mohammad Faizur Rahman.


AASKKP has submitted a memorandum to Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and Governor of Meghalaya RS Mooshahary demanding compensation.


Most of the labourers employed at coal mines in Meghalaya belong to Assam.


On December 31,2009, five coalmine workers were found murdered in the hilly terrains of Meghalaya. (ANI)
