Workers return to Assam

Guwahati, Sept. 1: About 150 Assam residents working in a factory in Shillong, Simplex, returned today after their jobs were terminated, city senior superintendent of police A.P. Tiwari told The Telegraph.

“They have not been paid for two months. We are doing everything for them to get justice through civil administration of Shillong. It is undoubtedly an issue between the factory administration and its workers,” he said.

He requested people to assist the police to ensure that “bad elements” do not exploit the situation by giving it “an Assam versus Meghalaya colour”.
