Gurgaon, July 20 (IANS) Local village heads (sarpanches) of the Manesar area Friday decried the repeated crises in leading car-maker Maruti’s Manesar plant, blaming these on “outsiders”, and demanded a Central Bureau of Investigating (CBI) probe into the situation, said a spokesperson.

Sarpanches from the villages of Manesar, Kasan, Sikhohpur, Kho, Rampura, Kankrola, and Bans Kusla accused the Haryana government of virtually supporting the agitating workers, the spokesperson said.

“The pollution control board, labour departments along with the help of top officials of the state government were busy in enrolling youths from select districts of Haryana,” said a spokesman of the sarpanches.

They alleged that the repeated agitations was a high-level conspiracy to shunt out Maruti from Gurgaon, where it set shop way abck in 1980s.

The sarpanches also said that they fully supported the Maruti Suzuki management.

Member of parliament from Gurgaon and IT standing committee chairman Rao Inderjit Singh agreed with the headmen’s views.

“The local people are law abiding and cooperative in nature. They don’t believe in violence. Maruti Udyog was established in 1981 and started production in 1983. In all these years, they have had a smooth run, having a workers’ strike only for a brief period in 1999,” Singh said.

He said that the addresses of the employees should be checked through a high-level inquiry.
