Yet another HPC employee died

Silchar: Yet another HPC employee died of ailments, sending shock and anger among employees who lost their jobs 4 years back when the government undertaking refused to function. 

Identified as Bazlul Hakim Laskar,  the 63 year old in Silchar has been ailing for the last couple of months and could not afford to continue treatment because of non receipt of salaries. 

This has triggered anger among his colleagues who have been leading deplorable lives for the last 4 years. 

Despite repeated assurances, BJP-led governments have been failing to mitigate their miseries. 

Laskar is the 101 employee of the PSU to have died a difficult death since the closure of the paper mills based in Nagaon and Jagiroad.
