By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Dec 13: The Assam Sanmilita Mahasangha  has expressed concern over the ibility on the part of Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL) to accord priority to the indigenous unemployed of the State while conducting recruitment drives. "The BCPL produces thousands of tonnes of raw materials daily. Numerous cottage industries were expected to be created by the government with the raw materials being produced by BCPL. However, only 4.22 per cent raw materials is available for use in Assam and the rest is exported to other states. It is a conspiracy hatched by the Centre and BCPL authority against the interest of Assam. There is also no reservation for the indigenous people of the state in BCPL. Fifty people of the Northeast had skill development training, but they are yet to be appointed by BCPL," Matiur Rahman, the executive president of the Mahasangha, said.
