Damas shut down, a fallout of violence

By Biplab Kr Dey

TURA, July 16 � The recent violence in West Garo Hills has compelled the Damas cement factory to shut down since June 22. Set up 12 years ago, the factory has been running into problems with production as it is situated at the border of Assam and Meghalaya. Due to the frequent bandh culture prevalent in Assam with numerous tribes calling for a blockade every other week, the company has been striving extremely hard to ensure continuous production.

Residents within the Damas area who are either directly or indirectly employed within the factory, have been hoping the work at the factory restarts at the earliest as their losses have piled up. They said that the factory was helping the town of Damas cope with a lot of stress and the factory needed to be up on its feet quickly.

Factory owner Ravi Jain speaking about the problems faced by them said about frequent bandh in Goalpara which have been affecting normal life. It has also been hampering us to a great extent as we struggle to meet production demands. The factory employs more than 700 people directly or indirectly and their livelihood depends on the smooth functioning of the two states.�
