Within six days of the lynching of Northbrook Jute Mill CEO H K Maheshwari, at least three jute mills have issued suspension of work notices.
State labour minister Purnendu Bose visited the Northbrook Jute Mill today and pulled up the management for not keeping the state government in the loop about labour unrest.
Victoria Jute Mill at Bhadreswar announced its closure today, leaving 5,000 workers jobless, while Auckland jute mill at Jagaddal and the New Central Jute Mill at Budge Budge had put up suspension of work notice earlier this week.

Maheshwari was lynched by agitated workers Sunday when the management did not agree to their demands to extend working hours.
After meeting the mill owners and labour union members, Bose said: “The management should have informed the government about the issues going on in the mill. There are several procedures to manage a mill. We held meetings with the jute millers which faced lockout. And Northbrook was one of them. But it was never discussed that they would curtail working days. If they were facing excessive stock issues, they could have applied for a lay-off.
Had the government been kept in the loop, we could have managed the situation earlier.”
“Moreover, the party which is ruling the country now and the party which has lost in the state have joined hands to trigger tension in the mill premises,” he added.
