OIL office sealing: Student bodies cry foul

Assam's students bodies blame it all on the OIL chairman MR Pasrija for the sealing of its office in New Delhi.

The leaders of the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) here demand proper inquiry into the whole incident and that the report should be made public.

They also demanded to turn the Duliajan administrative office of the company into a full-fledged corporate office.

President of All Moran Students’ Union Birinchi Moran, expressed deep anguish over the incident saying the headquarters of public sector companies such as the OIL and ONGC should be shifted to Assam.

Duliajan regional unit of the AASU says normal functioning of the office has been severely hampered due to the sealing.

In a statement, Anil Gogoi and Mahendra Dutta both president and general secretary urge OIL authorities to ensure that important documents are not lost or damaged as a result of the sealing.

A day after the New Delhi-based corporate office of the Oil India Limited was sealed by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) officials on Friday, reactions have started pouring in, specially with the AASU flaying the OIL higher-ups, particularly CMD, for the whole incident.

Notably, the OIL, which houses in a rented premises at 5 Sikander Road in New Delhi, was sealed on Friday by the MCD.

This, it may be added, was done in conformity with the Supreme Court ruling in which the apex court had asked the MCD to seal all commercial establishments located in residential areas of the national capital.

People turn aggressive against Raiway authority in Nagaon

11 Dec 2008 - 7:54pm | Dibya J Borthakur
The people of Nagaon turns aggressive against the decision made by NF Railway to temporarily suspend the Haibargaon-Guwahati rail service. According to information , the Lumding division of NF Railways is actively considering to divert the running of Kalangpar Passenger train and Kapili Inter City from Hoiborgaon to Silghat via Senchowa junction and Nagaon rail station after discontinuing their services to Haiborgaon.

A railway official placed in Lumding division,when asked about the diversion of this two train services, told this correspondent over telephone that the two trains, one running in the morning and the other at noon in between Hoiborgaon and New Bongaigaon and Hoiborgaon and Guwahati have been earning a big amount of revenue since they are introduced to the commuters. He also reveals that the rush of passengers during morning is so heavy that it becomes difficult for commuters to find room inside the train.He even too feels astonished at the behaviour shown by the Lumding division towards the commuters in this regard.

The people of Nagaon question , when certain train services in Lumding division have failed to earn the expected revenue ,then what is the logic behind discontinuing lucrative train services in this section.They suggest that the Railways may consider suspending less earning trains in the Lumding division and put their services on Chaparmukh-Silghat line instead of diverting the route of Kalangpar Passenger and Kapili Intercity trains.
