Ranchi: Recently North Indian Textile Mills Association and Tea Industry have given advertisements in newspapers, to show how deep economic crisis their sector and its people are facing.
Now, Federation of Jharkhand Chamber of Commerce & Industries (FJCCI), Ranchi has put up several hoardings in the state capital including one right in front of the residence of Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das to tell people how badly the industry sector is suffering in Jharkhand, a state known for its mineral resources and industries.
The hoarding pointed out the emergency situation industries of Jharkhand are facing. It appealed and mentioned the specific problems of the crisis. And it has warned that if situation does not improved they will desert the state.

It writes in Hindi, “Vayapariyo Ki Marmik Pukar, Ab To Shudh Lo Sarkar (Painful call of traders, now pay heed to us, dear government)”.
The FJCCI has also mentioned the specific issues the industries are facing including acute power shortage, failure of single window system, harassment by the police (especially to transporters), lack of basic facilities in industrial areas and red-tapism among others.
10000 industrial units in Jharkhand has been shut down
Federation’s president Deepak Maroo held a press conference and said, “We have tried to present our issues before the ministers and chief minister, but all went in vain. No one paid heed. So we have no option but to put hoardings. We started by putting them up in front of CM’s residence and several parts of Ranchi.”
“The hope of increase of industries have been dashed now. Two years back, the industries which were doing good have got ruined now. He further claimed, “Because of the insensitivity of state government (read Raghubar Das government) more than 10000 industrial units have been locked. And several are fighting for their existence,” he added.
Warning to move to Bengal
Federation has told its district units to install such hoardings in every district. Its members also said that if despite this the government does not pay heed to their grievances, they will be forced to start large scale protests.
While the hoarding clearly mentioned that it is a mayhem now and warned the Raghubar Das government that they can move to Bengal, if immediate action not taken on their grievances.
