Newyork/Ludhiana, June 4 (Raj Gogna )-Punjab Large Industrial Development Board Chairman Pawan Dewan expressed grief over the closure of Atlas Cycle factory in Ghaziabad on World Cycle Day and the unemployment of thousands of laborers due to this. Amidst the slogan of Make in India, it is as a major failure of the central government.In a statement issued here, Dewan said that on one hand the Modi government is talking about making the country self-reliant. At the same time, thousands of laborers have become unemployed due to the closure of the unit of Atlas, the country’s largest bicycle manufacturer, in Ghaziabad. Dewan said that the condition of industries has deteriorated during the tenure of the Modi government, everyone reminisces the days of former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, when employment opportunities were being provided. He said that the government should help the company to evolve and enrol the laborers in schemes like MNREGA, so that an era of bicycle manufacturing can be saved from destruction.

Point to be noted here is that there is BJP government in the state in addition to the one at the center region. Giving an example, he said that in a country like Netherlands, to promote the bicycle, even the big leaders are travelling on the bicycle, but here the government did nothing about the bicycle industry, which is actually related to a common man’s commutation.
