In Deep Wa­ters

India Today - - MAIL -

Vi­o­lence at Maruti Suzuki’s Mane­sar plant is a very un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent (“End of a Dream Run”, Au­gust 6). It could have been averted had the griev­ances of the work­ers been re­dressed on time. The Gov­ern­ment’s pas­sive role in the mat­ter is also a mat­ter of grave con­cern. The in­ci­dent will send wrong sig­nals to for­eign in­vestors plan­ning to in­vest in In­dia, es­pe­cially Haryana. V. K. TAN­GRI, Dehradun Haryana, which projects it­self as an at­trac­tive in­vest­ment des­ti­na­tion, is fast ac­quir­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for vi­o­lent labour un­rest. For­eign in­vestors may be wary about states of­fer­ing in­suf­fi­cient se­cu­rity and pro­tec­tion. Not just Haryana, the con­di­tions in sev­eral other in­dus­trial states are sim­i­lar and these prob­lems need to be ad­dressed im­me­di­ately. RAMESH SINHA, Gur­gaon
