SIAM condemns Unprovoked Violence at Maruti


The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) has come down heavily on the violence that took place in the Maruti, Manesar Plant yesterday.

In a statement, Mr S Sandilya, President, SIAM condemned the totally unprovoked and barbaric act of violence and called upon the State and Central Governments to take very strict action against the guilty.

Industry cannot accept such acts of violence no matter what the grievances are. All IR issues have to be sorted out only through mutual discussion. We understand from Maruti, that the way the violence was carried out, it was premeditated and planned act of violence which cannot be tolerated, said Mr Sandilya.

Mr Sandilya said that such acts of violence sully the image of India as a manufacturing base, as an investment destination and destroys years of efforts made by Government as well as industry to nurture industrial development in the country, which cannot be allowed to happen.

In addition, Mr Sandilya appealed to the workers of Maruti not to resort to violence but to resolve issues through mutual discussions.

On behalf of the entire automotive community, Mr Sandilya also conveyed condolences to the families of the dead and injured executives of Maruti.
