Niyogi Lives On!
Hindi, 60 min, 1992
The film documents the on-going struggle of the workers of Bhilai, an industrial town in Chhattisgarh, even after the murder of their leader Shankar Guha Niyogi.
A decade back, Niyogi, a leader of an incredible stature and vision, initiated the Chhattisgarh Mine Sramik Sangh (CMSS) in the neighboring mining towns of Dalli and Rajhara, organising tribal workers of iron mines. CMSS made history with the maximum number of police firings against its workers and building on Niyogi’s vision of Struggle with Construction.
Lately, Niyogi had set up the Chhattisgarh Mukti Morcha and expanded its work with the unorganised and temporary workers in several industrial units in Bhilai. The industrialists joined hands to murder Niyogi in September 1991.
