India’s largest car maker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), has planned to take assistance from the Haryana police post restarting the operations at its badly hit Manesar facility. However, the company has yet not confirmed any details regarding the reopening of its Manesar unit, which has affected from a rampage held between the employees of the company. With the demand of police protection, it seems that the domestic auto major is now not in a mood to handle any sort of unwanted situations because of its blue-collar employees.
On the other hand, the Haryana government also feels that the Manesar facility of MSIL should be monitored by a complete battalion, in order to reduce the chances of a ‘security threat’. On this, the Joint Commissioner of Police, Anil Kumar quoted, “It has been decided by the government that one full battalion will be there at the Manesar plant to provide security and it will be under an SSP rank officer.”
He further added that the guarded police will march under the orders of Yogender Nehra, the Senior Superintendent of Police. When asked about the tenure wherein the battalion will guard the Manesar facility, Kumar said, “The presence of the 500-600 police personnel will continue to be there till the next decision is taken after reopening the plant.” Commenting on the terms of extended protection, he further stated, “Though we have been giving full security and the plant is completely safe, some people are still apprehensive of a security threat.”
The mishap at MSIL’s Manesar facility claimed the life of a Senior HR Executive and around 100 employees were injured in the same. Following this, the operations at its Manesar plant remained shutdown from July 21 and the period of lockout is presently indefinite.
