HE LIKES TO FLY HIGH BUT ON GROUND LEVEL VIJAY MALLYA CHOOSES TO RENDER HUNDREDS OF WORKERS AT LONDON PILSNER JOBLESS

The decision of UB Group’s CEO Vijay Mallaya of closing down one of his units to build an aeronautical training centre has displaced hundreds of workers with the latter protesting against Vijay Mallaya’s decision. For the last seven months the London Prisoner Company situated at Nerul has been non-operational and now the Labor Commissioner too has sanctioned his closure. They were also no doubt in receiving the sanction for closure as the Company belongs to the business tycoon Vijay Mllaya. Vijay Mallaya bought London Pilsner in the year 2001 and since then the company has been under the UB Group. His sudden decision of closing down the company in 2007 had affected the livelihood of many workers and the sanction from the Labor Commissioner has added to their misery. Hundreds of workers have protested against the decision of Vijay Mallaya and have demanded him to reconsider his decision. The agitated workers held posters which displayed the two faces of Vijay Mallaya. One of the posters showed him throwing money at his team Royal Challengers’ and on the other showed him slaying the workers with a sword. We tried to speak with the management of the company but was informed by the security guard that no one was present outside. Questions are also being raised on the reason behind the closure as according to the records shown by the employees, the company’s output had grown from 12 lakh dozen of bottles to 20 lakh dozen of bottles. While the reason behind the closure is still unclear, it is ultimately the hundreds of workers and employees that have to face the brunt of Vijay Mallaya’s decision. Looks like somewhere down the line where Vijay Mallya has created waves by flying high in skies, he chooses to tread over the helpless on the ground below.
