Workers and employees of state-run Rangpur Sugar Mills, and the sugarcane farmers in the mill zone in Gaibandha, on Monday went on a strike demanding four months of arrear payments. 

The workers in association with the farmers, took position at Mahimaganj railway station in Gobindaganj upazila of the district and blocked the rail tracks around 11am, halting train traffic. 

Abu Sufian, president of Rangpur sugar mills workers and employees union, presided over a rally there.

Sufian said: 'The workers and employees of different government organizations are getting a salary and bonus ahead of Eid-ul-Azha. But we have not even gotten our salaries and other benefits for four months yet."

He demanded that the dues of workers, employees and sugarcane farmers be paid before Eid on humanitarian grounds.
