TEA concern over violence during stir

G. Gurumurthy


THE Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA) has expressed concern over incidents of vandalism including attacks on people by some miscreants during the two-day strike called by the hosiery workers' union on wages issue in Tirupur last week.

The TEA has also called upon the police authorities to investigate the incidents of violence and take legal action against the culprits responsible for the same.

It said in a statement that during the industrial hartal held at the behest of the trade unions on May 21 and 22, most industrial establishments remained closed but a few companies remained open to carry out some administrative work with skeleton staff.

Some miscreants targeted these companies attacking the innocent staff and ransacking their offices.

It was unfortunate that such unscrupulous elements should rule the day to indulge in physical assaults and commit vandalism, which were unheard of in Tirupur's industrial area, the TEA said.

The TEA sources, which claimed that at least a dozen industrial establishments became the target of attacks, said that cases had been filed on the basis of complaints lodged with the local police.

The association has urged the district police administration to take suitable action to prevent such violent incidents in future and effectively maintain the law and order in the hosiery town.
