‘My team and I strove hard for the development of Yanam and the welfare of workers. They have destroyed everything…I am worried over the future of 600 students.'

A day after the violent incidents at Regency Ceramics in Yanam which claimed the lives of a union leader, Mr Murali Mohan, and the president, Mr K.C. Chandrasekhar, the Chairman and Managing Director, Mr G.N. Naidu, told reporters here on Saturday that in the present circumstances, it would not be possible to re-open and run the factory.

He visited the private hospital where the body of his relative Mr K.C. Chandrasekhar, president of Regency Ceramics, was kept.

He later told reporters in a choked voice that “this is the gift the workers have sent me for setting up the factory and providing them livelihood.

My team and I set up the factory at a cost of Rs 700 crore and strove hard for the development of Yanam and the welfare of workers. They have destroyed everything.”

Educational institutions

Mr Naidu said it was reprehensible that the workers had attacked the educational institutions, unmindful of the damage to the future of the students.

“I am worried over the future of 600 students studying in Regency-run educational institutions.

“What harm have they done to the workers?” he asked.

Probe ordered

“I have conveyed to the Puducherry Government that it would not be possible to run the factory,” he said.

Yanam remained tense but quiet on Saturday, as shops and other establishments remained closed.

The police intensified patrolling and prohibitory orders were imposed. Mr M. Krishna Rao, MLA from Yanam, sought a comprehensive probe into the incident to identify who was really behind the incident.

Post-mortem examinations were conducted at the Government General Hospital here on the bodies of the union leader and the Regency executive.
