What's the story?

The workers had received a bonus for the last two years and this year, the management has refused to pay Diwali bonus. This is uncalled for and we will protest if the money is not paid to workers by Diwali which falls on October 20. There will be indefinite agitation and workers will voluntarily not report to work the next day — which is Bhaubeej."
