One Voice on Gheraos

bwe been more than 200 in W Bengal in the last two months, and the statement of S A Dange at the meeting of the tripartite Standing Labour Committee that he would rfr- ganise them (gheraos) with a vengeance" have elicited a great deal o^ comment in the press. It did not come as a surprise exactly that hardly any of the daily newspapers had a good word for gheraos. The Ambala Tribune said that gheraos could be supported "only by persons to whom agitation is bread and butter itself". "While pursuing such crude methods, the sponsors are unmindful of the national setback involved" the paper said. The paper condemned the West Bengal government and said that its decision "not to allow the police to interfere in industrial disputes has served as a direct encouragement to troublemakers who now feel that with communist Ministers conniving at their methods they can take the law into their own hands without any fear of police action". To balance this attack, the paper also administered a lecture to employers on implementing awards and agreements.
