ULFA (I) Warns Of Action Against OIL For Appointing ‘Non-Assamese’ CMD

Guwahati: The ULFA (Independent) chief Paresh Baruah on Thursday asked the regional forces and groups including All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP), Bir Lachit Sena and others to press the Oil India Limited (OIL) to appoint local eligible persons in its various posts.  

Baruah said that the OIL has betrayed the people of the state when it selected Dr Ranjit Rath for the post of chairman & managing director of OIL.  The public sector head-hunter (PESB) on Wednesday selected Rath for the post.

Last year, the outfit demanded 95 percent job reservation for indigenous candidates of Assam in Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), OIL and Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL). In a statement, the outfit had served a seven-point notice to the three public sector companies functioning in the State.

The statement mentioned that the ULFA (I) would abstain from military action against the companies only if their demands were met. The outfit had demanded that the companies should appoint a qualified indigenous person to the post of Managing Director.

“Last year, CM Sarma had promised us to take our demands forward. But OIL has deceived both the CM and the people of the state. ULFA (I) wants the OIL to withdraw their decision and appoint a qualified indigenous person to the post or to face action,” Baruah said in a statement.

He added, “I would like to request all the indigenous groups and organizations of the state like AASU, AJYCP, Tea tribe, Moran-Motak student groups and others to register their resentments against the anti-Assam decision.”
