Maoists shut down Dabur factory in Nepal

Kathmandu: Even as Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal sought more foreign investment and assured full security to industries, Maoists on Tuesday forced the closure of Indian ayurvedic giant Dabur’s subsidiary in Nepal.

After stopping the Dabur-sponsored annual beauty pageant a few weeks ago, the Maoists-affiliated All Nepal Trade Union Federation Revolutionary on Monday forced shut, indefinitely, Dabur’s main factory in Bara district, 250 km south of Kathmandu.

The union is demanding 10 per cent bonus for the workers and other benefits. The closure has jeopardised employment of over 700 people.

The management’s approach to Labour Minister and Maoist leader Lekhraj Bhatta and ANTUFR’s president and lawmaker Shalikram Jamarkattel failed to yield any result. Addressing a meeting in Kathmandu, senior Maoist leader Khim Lal Devkota on Tuesday said: “It is futile to talk about industrial security until the workers’ rights and welfare are guaranteed.” — PTI
