GUWAHATI, Oct 8 - The Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL) has alleged that some vested interest circles have been bent on maligning its image and for the purpose, they have produced a social media AV of a herd of elephants being obstructed by a boundary wall constructed by the Refinery.
In a statement here, the NRL has claimed that the AV is not authentic and validated. It has also alleged that baseless reports of the NRL constructing a golf course and obstructing free movement of elephants have also been appearing in certain sections of the media to tarnish its image.
A boundary wall to enclose 67 bighas of land earmarked for construction of additional residential accommodation for NRL employees was erected in the year 2011. It has no relation to the golf course which is within the premises of the existing NRL Township built in the year 1996.
The matter is presently under hearing at the National Green Tribunal and NRL will honour the verdict of the esteemed NGT in letter and spirit, said the NRL in its statement.
