Kolar: The state government will give necessary protection to the Taiwanese company–Wistron– in Kolar which was vandalised by its employees, informed Minister for Large and Medium Scale Industries in Karnataka Jagadish Shettar.

A press statement from the Minister stated, “Employees of a Taiwanese company vandalised Wistron office, situated in Narasapur Industrial Area in Kolar district of Karnataka, on Saturday. The incident occurred over the non-payment of salary dues for several months. The company deals with the manufacturing of Apple iPhones in India.”

“The protest against the management turned violent after some people started vandalizing the office, setting vehicles on fire, pelting stones and setting the company’s board on fire,” the statement read.

Regretting the unpleasant incident, the Minister said that it is not right to take the law into one’s hand no matter what the problem was.
“The State government has taken steps to develop industries in the State and is committed to the protection of the worker’s right. The problem could have been resolved if it had been adequately addressed as per law,” the statement quoted him as saying.

Shettar said that the state government is ready to provide adequate protection to companies that have invested in the state.
“We will take stringent measures to prevent such unpleasant events from recurring. We have already spoken with the District Superintendents of Kolar District and the Superintendents of Police and have been instructed to provide necessary protection. Karnataka is a peaceful state, which has always welcomed foreign investors and investment and provided them with a peaceful and friendly environment to conduct business,” the statement read.
