9. TRICHUR MUNCIPALITY. Trichur is a big business centre in Rice. Vegitables. Groceries etc. BMS started their Union among workers who load and unload bags and other commodities from lorries. Fed up with the corruption and indiscipline of the CITU Union, many workers joined the BMS Union. The loading and unloading work was being done on "Pool system" under the Kerala Head load workers Act, supervised by officers of the Labour Department. But, angered by the growing strength of BMS; the CITU leaders forced the Labour Department to make a change in the prevailing system illegally, thus depriving BMS workers from getting enough work. It must be stated that the loading and unloading of hags from the lorries must be done by trained men and BMS workers were doing this with expertness and discipline. As a result, on 1.12.87, the CITU workers suddenly attacked the BMS workers and injured two workers namely George and Dtevassy. Two weeks before this, one another worker of BMS was attacked.

They are in fact too many to be cited here. In one village, namely Arthat, even drinking water was refused to the RSS families. Police as usual have been inactive in even" registering cases on complaints.

In fact. it has become a nightmare for the family members of Swayamsevaks to live in peace and one does not know when and from where atacks will come on them. They live in a state of constant fear. Yet, it has to be noted, that greatest courage is being shown by the youngsters of RSS who work with a sense of dedication and determination to face the marauders.
