Tripathi made a striking declaration, submitting an undertaking affirming his role as the leader of the workers’ union for several years. He emphasized his commitment to advocating for workers' rights through representations made to governmental bodies and various platforms.
Surat : In an unexpected turn of events, Sunshat Tripathi, the president of the Dakshin Gujarat Kamdar Parishad, has vehemently denied filing a complaint with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) Pune bench regarding the devastating fire at Aether Industries Limited in Sachin GIDC, Surat.
Tripathi made a striking declaration, submitting an undertaking affirming his role as the leader of the workers’ union for several years. He emphasized his commitment to advocating for workers’ rights through representations made to governmental bodies and various platforms.
However, he stressed that an unauthorized use of his letterhead led to the filing of a complaint with the NGT and the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) against Aether Industries Limited.
The tragic incident at Aether Industries resulted in the loss of nine lives, with nine other workers currently in critical condition. Additionally, 24 workers sustained burn injuries in the fire that engulfed the premises on November 29.
Addressing the matter, Sunshat Tripathi stated, “An application has been made against Aether Industries in the NGT, Pune bench using my letterhead. I have not filed any application and have no dispute with the management of Aether Industries.”
The circumstances surrounding the misappropriation of Tripathi’s letterhead for the complaint remain unclear. Authorities are now faced with unraveling this unexpected twist in the ongoing investigation into the fire tragedy at Aether Industries.
The incident has sparked renewed concern over industrial safety measures and the welfare of workers, prompting a call for a thorough probe into the events leading up to the catastrophic fire.
As the investigation progresses, questions loom regarding the accountability and safety protocols within the industrial setup, further emphasizing the need for stringent measures to prevent such tragic occurrences in the future.
