12-hr Barak bandh called today

By STAFF CORRESPONDENT

SILCHAR, Nov 21 - Employees of the closed Cachar Paper Mill, a unit of the government- owned Hindustan Paper Corporation at Panchgram in Barak Valley are unmoved on their decision to go for a 12-hr Barak bandh tomorrow.

A rally was taken out on Wednesday evening by the Paper Mill Revival Action Committee to generate mass awareness for the bandh urging people from all sections of the society in the valley to keep their shutters down throughout the day and support the cause. The bandh call has been supported by the Left parties and a number of associations and organisations across southern Assam.

�We are disgusted and disappointed with the promises of the government which have failed to revive the Paper Mill. During Namami Barak in November last year, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had assured that the Mills at Cachar and Nagaon would be revived and running within six months. But a year has gone by and the mills are awaiting for the coveted promises to be fulfilled. Already 39 people have died due to economic hardships which we are being put to owing to the closure of the mill,� said Manabendra Chakraborty, chief convener of the action committee.
