Tripura CM Biplab Deb drops May Day from holidays list; asks govt employees, 'You are not labourer, why will you mourn?'
Deb said that May Day is meant for workers and labourers and none else. He claimed his government has done justice by granting holiday on May Day only for workers in industrial sector. Why do government employees need holiday on May Day? ...I have noticed that it is a holiday on that day in very few states.
More than seven lakh people on Sunday thronged the streets in Odisha's temple town of Puri to witness the world famous Ratha Yatra, officials said.
