Guwahati: Twelve opposition parties in Assam jointly submitted a letter to the Governor on July 27, regarding the Brahmaputra Valley Fertilizer Corporation Ltd. (BVFCL) in Namrup. They urged the Governor to prevent the potential closure of BVFCL and initiate the construction of the proposed Namrup IV unit.
The Forum emphasized BVFCL’s significance as the only urea manufacturing company in Eastern India, contributing significantly to the region’s development and economy while creating job opportunities for many.
The United Opposition Forum in Assam comprises parties like Congress, Assam Jatiya Parishad, CPM, Raijor Dal, CPI, Janata Dal Assam, NCP, RJD, Janata Dal (U), Trinamool Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, and CPI (ML). The Forum’s President is Bhupen Kumar Borah of Congress, and Lurinjyoti Gogoi of Assam Jatiya Parishad serves as General Secretary.
Amidst the concerns, Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers, Mansukh Mandaviya, clarified in a video message that there are no plans to shut down BVFCL. However, recent reports indicated that the Committee of Group of Officers (CGO) under NITI Aayog recommended BVFCL for closure as part of the New Public Sector Enterprises (PSE) Policy for Atmanirbhar Bharat.
