Ruia Group chairman Pawan Ruia on Saturday expressed hope that his company Dunlop would reopen soon, before Durga Puja, as meetings with the parties concerned have been “very positive”. “I was hoping Dunlop will open before Jessop. There have been three meetings that were positive. The government too is eager to open Dunlop. The ice has melted in those meetings. It might be that before Durga Puja Dunlop will reopen too,” Ruia said on the sidelines of the reopening of the Jessop factory.
Owned by Pawan Ruia, the tyre manufacturing company shut the factory in 2009.
Ruia said the perception about industries in Bengal would change soon. “I certainly feel the government is trying to revive other industries just as it did in the case of Jessop. Gradually, the situation might improve for Bengal. There are lots of negative perception about industries here. New industries won’t come up in a day or month, it takes time,” Ruia said.
