BREAKING: ULFA (I) warns of ‘Action’ against Tata’s Amalgamated Plantation in Assam
GUWAHATI: The banned militant outfit of ULFA (Independent) on Thursday asked Tata’s Amalgamated Plantation Private Limited (APPL) to immediately relocate its administrative offices to Assam and to recruit only indigenous people of Assam in various positions that open up in the company from now on.
The outfit said that the company’s head office was outside Assam where no indigenous personnel from Assam were in employment. Its liaison office was also not in Assam.
ULFA (I) in a statement said that though the company has an administrative office in Assam, the office was run by staff in a temporary employment contract.
The statement said that if APPL failed to act on its demand promptly, the ULFA (I) will be forced to take action to prevent you from doing business in Assam.
“No one connected with your company would be allowed to travel around in Assam in your business interest. Finally, we won’t be a shy way to ruin your company by forcing the closure of your tea garden either. We trust that no one in your company takes this as an empty threat and ignores this notice and we believe that appreciating that Assam has the first right to get recruited to your company, you will heed our notification and your company will comply fully. This would be good for your company and Assam,” the outfit said in the statement.
