Campaign to save Numaligarh Refinery

A public meeting was held recently at Golaghat to discuss about the ongoing crisis in Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL). The meeting was attended by people from various walks of life. Representatives from various social organisations like AASU, AJYCP, AGP, BJP, Vox-Populi (an N.G.O.) were also present in the meeting. N.R.L. has always been a dream project for the people of Assam as its very foundation is based on the sacrifices of the glorious martyrs of Assam Movement and the NRL stands as a symbol of incessant struggles and sacrifices of the Assamese people. NRL has always been playing a determining role in the economy of Assam and now at the time of its crisis everybody should come forward to protect its interest instead of deserting it to longitude in solitude. The State Govt. played the role of a mute spectator to the gross mismanagement of the NRL authority.

The crisis has come to such an extent that the retail outlets of NRL are on the verge of closure thereby rendering a terrible blow to the local youths of the region who have been solely earning their livelihood through these Retail Outlets. In order to make the Govt. and the authorities of NRL aware of the present situation and to recover the NRL from the ongoing crisis, a committee have been formed in the name of “Numaligarh Sudhanagar Suraksha Sangram Samiti” having Debojit Phukan and Rohit Gogoi as joint-secretary and Kuladhar Chamua as its President. The members of the committee had handed over a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner,. Golaghat, Sri Dipak Kr. Goswami.

For similar reason, Reliance is out of retail outlets. Govt must give equal status to NRL along the lines of Indian Oil and other PSUs.

We must fight to protect NRL. It has our pride intact.
