MORIGAON, March 28: The ARTFED which was established in 1977 to promote local hand-made products of the Assamese people is lying in a deplorable condition owing to the lackadaisical attitude of the state government.
As per information, ARTFED is reeling under a big economic crisis as the supply of local hand-made products to the organisation has halted abruptly. On the other hand, the employees of ARTFED have been deprived of their salary for over nine months. Owing to the crisis, the employees are facing a lot of trouble as they are unable to pay bank loans, school fees for children, etc. The employees were informed that if the government fails to pay heed to their situation, they will be left with no other option rather than calling for a strike.
