British rulers had their own kind of discriminating the workers. From a letter of the union published in the ‘Telegraph Review’ July 1928, the Union has demanded that, there is no latrine for the Indian Staff in the Telegraph Office Patna and it should be provided. While a latrine has been provided for Anglo-Indian Staff, there is none for Indian Staff. At the same time, the union also states that the Indian Staff can not be expected to use the latrine allotted for menials ( cleaners, scavengers etc.)!

It seems that the Britishers thought  that separating one section against the other and discrimination will allow them to continue their rule.
