Must read

Dibrugarh, May 15: The All-Assam Students Union (AASU) and several groups and organisations have protested the alleged conspiracy hatched by the authorities of Oil India Limited (OIL) to shift four important departments namely, accounts, human resource employment, human resource development, contract, and procurement departments from the headquarters of Duliajan, first to Guwahati and later to Noida.

While responding to a memorandum to an organisation, the Chief General Manager (Field Admin) on behalf of the RCE, OIL said, “as confirmed by the top management of OIL, this is to inform you that information regarding shifting of few departments to Guwahati and Noida is ill informed and is being denied herewith.”


AASU has suspended their agitational program after getting written assurance from the RCE that no department is going to be shifted from Duliajan.
However, AASU demanded the Chairman & Managing Director of OIL to come and make the above announcement in Duliajan.

After written assurance from OIL, AASU lifted the blockade programme. The blockade programme was organised from Monday, started from 2 pm and today after the assurance from OIL the blockade programme was lifted at around 3 pm.


“OIL has decided to shift some of its department viz. Finance, HR and other important departments from Duliajan but we have opposed this move. On Monday, in protest of the OIL decision, we organised a blockade programme but today Oil India authorities have given a written assurance to us and after that the blockade was lifted,” said Aboni Kumar Gogoi, president of AASU Dibrugarh.

He said, “how can we give the main departments of OIL to shift to another state. The natural gas and Oil procured from our land then how could they decide to move the departments,”.
