GUWAHATI: The HPC Paper Mills Revival Action Committee alleged that the State’s Chief Minister has been failing in stepping up measures to revive the paper mills located at Jagiroad and Cachar. “In spite of reviving, the State government is conspiring to shut both the public sector mills forever,” the Committee said.

Talking to the reporters here on Tuesday, the Committee revealed that as many as 36 employees of the mills have died due to lack of treatment while two others have committed suicide. “A sizable number of students studying in various higher educational institutes outside the State were forced to return home as their parents were not in a position to afford expenses,” the Committee said.

Citing the examples of the Madhya Pradesh government’s financial aid of Rs 469 crore to revive the NEPA Paper Mills, the Committee said, the Centre and State government have been showing a different attitude in the case of Jagiroad and Cachar mills.

Meanwhile, to reiterate their demands, the HPC Paper Mills Revival Action Committee has called a 12-hour middle Assam bandh on November 22.
