PM Modi expressed concern over violence at Wistron, says BS Yediyurappa | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Chief minister BS Yediyurappa said PM Narendra Modi has expressed concern over violence at Wistron, an iPhone manufacturing company, at Narasapur in Kolar district, and asked the government to not let such incidents recur in the state.
The CM told reporters that the state government has already taken measures and declared it’s committed to punishing the perpetrators of the violence.
Yediyurappa said the state was offering full support to the company to resume its operations at the earliest and without fear. The government’s action comes two days after the Centre pulled up the state for neglecting early signs of the workers’ unrest at Wistron and delayed police response after violence broke out at the factory on Saturday.
Karnataka labour minister Shivaram Hebbar said the government was making efforts to help the Taiwanese manufacturing firm restart its operation in the next two weeks and termed the incident ‘unfortunate’.
Contracted workers of the company had ransacked the plant on Saturday, alleging harassment and nonpayment of salaries. The company has put the loss at Rs 43 crore. Police have arrested more than 160 workers in connection with the violence.
