Fulfill all demands of paper-mill employees, Manab Adhikar Sangram Samiti urges Dispur
MASS (Manab Adhikar Sangram Samiti) has called upon the State Government to fulfill all the demands raised by the employees of Nagaon and Cachar Paper Mills.
LAKHIMPUR: MASS (Manab Adhikar Sangram Samiti) has called upon the State Government to fulfill all the demands raised by the employees of Nagaon and Cachar Paper Mills. MASS president Aditya Lahkar and secretary Raju Singha made this appeal to the government through a press communique on Sunday.
Through the same press communique, the organization termed the notice issued to all the employees of Nagaon and Cachar Paper Mills to vacate the quarters within 15 days as "tyrannical, non-humanitarian and anti-indigenous". This notice was issued to them on September 3, by liquidator Kuldeep Bamai, appointed by the 'National Company Law Tribunal'.
"With this notice, the government has broken its promises made to all the paper mill employees before the Assam Assembly Elections and this is just a small example of the anti-public stand taken by the government", said MASS in the press communique.
MASS has demanded that all the 1,200 employees of the two paper mills must be provided with employment in various departments of the State Government. It also said that they should be paid all the money due from the paper mills. The organization also demanded that steps must be taken to revive the two paper mills and to develop them as major enterprises for employment.
The organization also urged the government not to treat the paper-mill employees as microfinance loan borrowers.
