Puzzled by the riot that broke out at the Manesar production facility of Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), the auto maker is looking for a suitable solution and is leaving no stone unturned to do so. In its desperation to find a suitable solution to avoid such unrest in future, Maruti is now seeking assistance of an astrologer to correct the vaastu of its Haryana based facility.
Showing his consent on the invitation by the country’s largest auto maker, astrologer Deivajna K N Somayaji told Times of India, “The corrections must be done to ensure that the problem does not spread to other units. I have held a few meetings with the company officials.”
The Bangalore based astrologer initiated his proceedings on July 29, and is expected to examine the Manesar plant a couple of times before the completion of assignment.
The Manesar facility of MSIL, 17 km from Gurgaon, is spread over a whooping land piece of 600 acre, which is said to be built on a burial ground. As reported by the local residents in vicinity of plant, there existed three temples in the unit premises, which were completely demolished in order to construct the plant. However, the company officials refused to comment on the statement.
Speaking on the vaastu front, the land is full of ‘all negative energy’ and this need to be isolated through means of an extensive puja. According to an astrologer, after carrying the sacrament for 2-3 weeks, the entire area will be free from ‘all negative energy’.
In past couple of years, everything was going normal at the plant, which is segregated in to three different units, A, B and C. The unit A was fairly lucrative for the auto maker as it was performing significantly well. But later few issues emerged at Plant B, including labour unrest and inconvenience in the production procedure as well.
With its move to appoint a vedic astrologer, it seems that MSIL is keen to restart its business operations in the Manesar plant, which is currently surrounded by the clouds of lockout. The shut down of production has hit the company’s reputation severely as MSIL has already started loosing its dominating market share to its close rivals.
