Honda workers from Rajasthan, who were sacked, ended their 19-day hunger strike at Jantar Mantar Saturday after the health of five workers took a turn for the worse a day before. Meanwhile, Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai, who visited the protestors Saturday, offered his support in their “fight” against the factory management.
Nineteen days into their indefinite hunger strike and in the ninth month of their demonstration against the “illegal” termination of over 3,000 workers for trying to form a union, five workers had called off the strike Friday citing health reasons. The remaining workers began a relay hunger strike to carry on the protest.
“We have come here to fight, not to die. No one heard us out all these days when our fellow workers were on hunger strike. But we cannot let them die. We will continue our struggle till we are reinstated,” said Raj Pal, secretary of the union.

Rai said, “I consulted my officials on this matter and I can tell you that no industrial body can fire so many workers without the permission of the government. And no law permits them to fire workers who are permanent. All of you must continue your fight because you will win.”
