By CORRESPONDENT

JAGIROAD, March 28 � The Kendriya Vidyalaya Suraksha Mancha (KVSM), a public body to safeguard the existence and interests of the KV, HPCL, Jagiroad recently staged a dharna in front of the main gate of the Nagaon Paper Mill, demanding continuation of the Kendriya Vidyalaya, HPCL, Jagiroad and withdrawal of HPCL�s advertisement published in a section of the print media recently to hand over the school to a private party.

The KVSM also submitted a memorandum signed by the president and secretary of the Mancha, Sanjib Rodokakaty and Rajkumar Kalita respectively to the chief executive (acting) of the Nagaon Paper Mill (NPM) to place its demand. The All Assam Students� Union also extended support to KVSM in its agitational programme.

Meanwhile, the Morigaon district unit of the AASU submitted a memorandum to the NPM authority demanding immediate cancellation of the controversial advertisement of the NPM for withdrawal of the KV and other issues. It also threatened to block raw materials supply to the NPM if its demands are not met immediately.

In the meantime, the Jagiroad regional unit of the AASU expressed anguish over a number of issues concerning the Nagaon Paper Mill of the Hindustan Paper Corporation Limited.

The unit recently met the chief executive of the NPM, HN Baruah to submit a memorandum and threatened that if the authority fails to meet its demands at an early date, the organisation would be forced to take up a vigorous agitation including bamboo blockade to press its demands.

The AASU unit�s demands include withdrawal of the controversial advertisement for handing over the KV, HPCL to a private party, curbing of pollution and shifting of the HPCL headquarters from Kolkata to Assam.

In the memorandum, the AASU unit pointed out that all the integrated units of the HPCL are situated in Assam. �We, therefore, see no reason why the headquarters of the corporation should continue to stay in Kolkata,� it said. On the pollution issue, the students� unit mentioned about mercury pollution and demanded that measures be taken for replacement of the mercury cells by membrane electrode cells.

On the decision to hand over the Kendriya Vidyalaya, the unit criticised the mill for the �sheer insensivity to the public sentiment.� The corporation should not at any cost give away a socially useful body like the Kendriya Vidyalaya. The AASU unit suggested curtailment of costs from other heads for enabling the Kendriya Vidyalaya to survive.

In the memorandum, the president and the secretary of the local students� body, Jitumoni Pathak and Swapun Jyoti Borkakoti respectively stated that if the present chief excutive of the NPM fails to deliver his services in all matters due to hindrances beyond his control, �he should better make way for a more efficient personnel.�
