Durgapur’s Jai Balaji officials receive fresh threat calls

Jai Balaji Industries of Durgapur has hit the news headlines again as the company officials received fresh threat calls from Trinamool leader Ashim Pramanik, whom a section of the Trinamool leadership tried to disown form the party and who is the main accused behind the December ’12 labor unrest in Jai Balaji Industries.
Yesterday, Ashim Pramanik was seen sharing the stage with local senior Trinamool leaders, addressing a rally of around 40 INTTUC workers outside the Asansol-Durgapur Development Authority’s office today. Pramanik said: “Jai Balaji authorities have pushed our workers to the wall. They are not being given salaries on time. If the three workers suspended in December are not taken back, we will again stop work and detain the plant officials.”
Senior Trinamool leaders seen at the rally today included the Durgapur civic chairman, Suprabhat Mondal, member of the mayor in council Madhusudan Mondal and borough committee-II chief Chandan Saha.
Many workers from the steel plant attended the rally and later followed Pramanik to the deputy labor commissioner’s office, where they submitted a deputation in support of their demand.
The steel plant officials initially refused to react to Pramanik’s threats. However, Niranjan Gourisaria, the senior vice-president of Jai Balaji latar said, “We will not react to Pramanik’s demands and accusations. We were told by the INTTUC Burdwan president that Pramanik is not a member of their union. We have already prohibited his entry into our plant and will not withdraw the suspension orders against the three workers.”
The Trinamool leadership in Durgapur that had earlier said Pramanik was “nobody in the party” today refused comments on the rogue leader’s threats and also on his links with Trinamool.
