Shimla, Jul 23 (UNI) Supermax Industries, mired in controversy after one of its security personnel opened fire on protesting workers, killing one and injuring several others, today accused the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) of creating atmosphere of terror in and around the factory premises at Shogi.
"The office bearers, members and associates of the BMS are threatening the staff of the Supermax Industries and are preventing the officers of the industrial units from coming near the factory,'' company's general manager Subhash Chaudhuri alleged in a release here.
"They are also roaming around the entire industrial premises in and around the industrial area of Shoghi and threatening the factory officials to leave the place." "The district administration has not extended any help to the company's officials to enter the factory premises and ascertain the damage caused to it and take steps to make the unit re-function," Mr Chaudhuri said.
"For the factory to re-open, confidence has to be restored in the entire community that the local administration would enforce law and order and not allow anyone to take law into their hands." "While the miscreants who had caused widespread damage to the factory are roaming freely and organising protests and demonstrations in front of the police, the company's CEO V K Triparthi is still languishing jail," he added.
"The company, which had so far provided employment to 1,500 people, including 500 girls, in the factory is not being provided any help from the administration to resume its functioning at Shoghi," he lamented.
