Indore. On one hand, the Central Government is claiming relief to the small and medium entrepreneurs of the country through a relief package of 20 lakh crore rupees, while more than 5 thousand small and medium industrialists of Madhya Pradesh are upset with the apathy of the Madhya Pradesh government. These industrialists, angry with the Shivraj government, staged a sit-in online on Thursday.
According to Association of Industries MP (AIMP) President Pramod Duffaria, the dharna was organized on Thursday under the banner of AIMP. According to AIMP, the factories have been closed for almost two months due to the lockdown, no work is being done. Despite this, electricity bills worth lakhs of rupees have been issued.
Due to the closure of work, the financial condition of the entrepreneurs is already bad, despite this, they paid salaries to the workers and employees. The raw material lying in the factories has also deteriorated to a large extent. If the government does not help it will be difficult to run the industry. About 5 thousand industrialists associated with AIMP participated in this online dharna with the improvement of electricity bill and other written placards. A special technical team was formed for the strike.
