Labour unions continue strike, demand RDC inquiry
On Tuesday members of Oil Refinery Labour Union, Oil Refinery Contract Labourer Co-operative Society and Maa Vaidehi Labour Union congregated at gate no 4 of the refinery where the alleged firing took place Monday. CISF DIG Kumar Vinay Singhdeo reached Paradip last evening to take stock of the situation.
On Monday as many as eight people including some labourers were injured at the refinery as CISF jawans allegedly opened fire. Scuffle between the jawans and the labourers gained momentum when some workers without gate pass reportedly tried to force enter into the plant premises at gate no 4. The security forces allegedly opened fire at the labourers when situation went beyond control.
