Hunger deaths haunt tea gardens of Assam

February 16, 2012

In a shocking revelation from the northeastern part of the country, CNN-IBN has exposed hunger deaths in the tea gardens of Silcher even as the state government has rubbished the claims of it and reopened the garden.

The malnourished and starving workers of the tea garden of Silchar don’t get the essential medical help as the area has a non-functional national rural health mission with no qualified doctors, electricity and water supply.

10 tea plantation workers died due to starvation, malnutrition and lack of medical care during the closure of the garden for 4 months from 8 October, 2011 to 9 February, 2012 in the Bhuvan Valley Tea Estate in Cachar, Assam (India). Tea garden workers get lower than minimum wage, inedible rations and don’t even get proper medical facilities.

Rajdeep Sardesai of CNN-IBN, Prasenjit Biswas of BHRPC and Anuradha Talwar, a right to food activist discuss the seriousness of the situation.
