Atma Shanto stated that the 5 % growth expected this year would not be possible without the employees who have been dismissed.
Furthermore, a number of employees addressed the group that had gathered, among whom was one from Courts, Moosamy Subroyan, who claimed having worked there for 29 years and that he was ready to go on hunger strike. The workers explained that being jobless, it would now be difficult to cater for the needs of their children.
