Different workers organizations have demanded that compensation be paid to the victims of the Rana Plaza building collapse.

The demand was made in seperate human chain rallies held in front of the National Press Club in the capital on Friday making the second anniversary of the tragedy.

Combined Garments Workers’ Federation, Bangladesh Progotisheel, Sramik Federation,  Sramik Oikya and Bangladesh Sangjukta Sramik Federation have formed the human chains.

Leaders of the organizations alleged that the victims’ dependents  and injured workers are yet to be rehabilitated even after two years of the accident although Tk 107 crore deposited in the Prime Minster’s fund remained unused.

They also criticized the government and BGMEA for not making any specific announcement in providing financial assistance to the Rana
Plaza victims.

The deadly building collapse in Savar killed at least 1129 people, mostly readymade garment workers, and injuring scores on April 24, 2013.
