Amid the general perception among public leaders and NGOs, that the revival of the Tuli paper mill (NPPC Ltd), the only public sector undertaking in the state, would benefit not only employees but also people of the area, the Tzudikong Ad-hoc Town Committee (TATC) has said it regretted that “the activities of the mill have come to a standstill”.
O. Benjung Jamir, Vice chairman TATC, said it would be difficult for any layman to honestly justify the lack of development in the mill as there seemed to be a “hidden agenda” on the part of the HPC to “sabotage progress”. Further the TATC alleged that HPC did not want the Tuli mill to be successful as it would have “a far reaching consequences” on the paper business in the mainland since the mill in the past had produced the highest quality paper.
TATC also cited non payment of salaries of NPPC employees from May 2010 till date as another instance of HPC’s “deceptive management”. TATC said while NPPC employees were languishing with the 5th RoP “with skeletal facilities”, HPC was paying 6th RoP to employees of its units in Cachar paper mill, Nagaon paper mill and Hindustan newsprint Ltd.
Non payment of salaries to NPPC employees for the past four months had adversely affected their children’s studies as many were on the verge of returning home since they could not clear college and mess fees, it said.
TATC asked that if a “disgraced CMD is suspended and under CBI scanner” was it not a violation of human rights when employees and children of NPPC suffer?
TATC cautioned that the situation at NPPC was volatile if the HPC continued to be callous and adopt double standard with regard to NPPC employees.
