Stray Dogs Killed Kosli Migrant Labourers Child

Here is one of the many incidence where the migrant labourers of KOSAL have lost it all again ......

ORISSA GOVT...PLZ GIVE WORK & FOOD TO OUR PEOPLE SO THAT THEY DON'T HAVE TO MIGRATE TO OTHER PLACES AND GET KILLED OR EXPLOITED....

ANUALLY 80,000 PEOPLE FROM BALANGIR & NUAPADA DIST MIGRATE OUTSIDE THE STATE IN SEARCH FOR LIVELIHOOD ....

The lives of the family members of Prashant, who was mauled to death by dogs, are no better than dogs.

Prashant’s parents, Sukhdeep and Kaikeyi, had migrated from Nuapada district in Western Orissa to Bangalore, lured by their contractor Gonti Yadav. Their dreams of securing a decent life in the city were shattered once they landed and became bonded labourers at a brick kiln in Bagalur.

They are among the thousand of families from the Balangir and Nuapada dist of Western Orissa brought to work in the brick kilns in the city and paid a very trivial amount.

"We work from 3 am to 10 pm. If we object to the poor working conditions, we are beaten up badly," said a brick kiln worker. All the labourers in the brick kiln are from tribal regions of Western Orissa and Bihar. They say that the touts keep doing rounds in their States in search of ‘preys’ and bring them to the cities to work as bonded labourers.

"Anyone can enter our houses as there are no doors. The roof (made of hay, leaves and plastic) leaks during rainy season. There is none to listen to our plight," said another labourer.

Meagre payment

The workers are paid Rs 50 for every 1,000 bricks they make. It is difficult for an individual to meet the target of 1,000 bricks. In spite of the families roping in children also to work day and night, they hardly achieve their target. Children in the age group of five and 15 work at the brick kilns.

"Here every rule is flouted. Neither Prevention of Child Labour Act nor the Minimum Wages Act is followed. The employers here have not provided basic amenities to the workers," said a social worker living nearby.

The report prepared by the Yelahanka Tahsildar, to be submitted to the government, confirms that minimum wages are not paid to the workers and children are employed here. Workers are deprived of all basic facilities that an employer must provide, the report said.

Wednesday’s incident hasforced the administration out of its deep slumber.

Welcome to the land of culture "Koshal" . Koshal is the land of great warriors. The land of Maharaja's.The land of Maa Samalei, World famous sambalpuri saree , great teracotta works, land of tantrik Vidya, world famous Sambalpuri music and dance.

Koshal consists of ten beautiful districts..

and Deogarh.

The motto of this community is to bring all the young warriors of koshal to a common platform from where they can initiate the process to preserve the great Koshali culture and swear to free our motherland koshal from atrocities..

So friends lets join hand and do something extraordinary to create a separate identity of us across the globe and create a separate koshal state,full of prosperity and impartiality.

We Consider Kosali language as the mother of Oriya language, the origin of kosali language was found by the historians from Subarnapur in Stambheswari inscription of 12th century A.D. The Kosali language is spoken by about 2 crores of people in the entire KBK belt and Western Orissa and part of A.P., M.P., Chhatisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. It is a matter of regret that the Government of Orissa has not taken any interest to improve the standard of Kosali (Sambalpuri) language.


KOSAL COMMUNITY STRONGLY DEMANDS THAT THE KOSALI(SAMBALPURI) LANGUAGE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY BE ENLISTED IN THE 8TH SCHEDULE OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA
