The employees ran to the CM Navin Pattanaik, Labour Minister Local MLA Prafulla Mallick, Collector & DLO number of times. They recently gheraoed Mr. Mallick on 20th May in front of Dhenkanal Collectorate. But, everything goes in vain.
Yesterday, they saw an illegal Entry of Vehicle No. OR-06-G-4121 & OR-02-BQ-5325 into the company & Democratically objected it since without giving any compensation and arrears dues to the company Reliance Industries Limited tried to transfer the Assets / Equipments to another similar company.
