The employees union of Nowgong paper mill in Jagiroad have staged protest against the order of liquidation of the paper mills under Hindustan Paper Corporation Limited in Assam by the National Company Law Tribunal.
Protesting outside the paper mill, the employees said that they demanded revival of the paper mill and opposed the liquidation of the two paper mills of Nowgong and Cachar which was non-functional since March 2017 and October 2015 respectively. The employees demanded immediate revival of the paper mill in Nowgong or else the government should release the pending salaries of the employees.
The employees, however, said that the government intentionally dealt with the process in such a manner that the matter reached the court and the industrial units go under the control of private parties. The employees union also threatened the government that the situation will worsen if the paper mill will be handed over to the private parties.
