Addressing a massive public meeting in scorching heat at Shajahanpur in Uttar Pradesh, attended by the employees of Ordnance Clothing Factory the oldest Clothing Factory on Saturday, C. Srikumar, General Secretary of AIDEF gave a clarion call to 75,000 Employees of Ordnance Factories to not give any option to join the 7 Corporations which will go against their interest. C. Srikumar is on a lightning tour to educate the employees of Ordnance Factories. After addressing workers in the 5 Ordnance Factories of Kanpur along with AIDEF President S. N. Pathak, Srikumar addressed meeting at Ordnance Equipment Factory Hazratpur, near Tundla and also visited Shajahanpur.
C. Srikumar told www.indianpsu.com that post Corporatization, things are becoming worse and many Factories including the Factories under TCL & YIL will not be having workload from 2023 onwards. Government which assured full workload is now telling the Corporations should compete with Private Sector. The Army is not placing the order for Strategic Digital design uniform load to the TCL .The Army requires 12 lakh set of Uniform per year. If this Order along with other Troop Comfort items, Parachutes, Boots, Extreme Winter Clothing etc. is placed on TCL, then only TCL with almost 7000 employees which includes a large number of women workers will survive.
Same is the situation with the other 6 Companies. Government, instead of critically and dispassionately analyzing the existence of the 41 Factories is only depending on the Officials to show a rosy picture of the 7 Corporations. The CAG Audit will expose the 6 months doctored profit statement given by these Companies.
