The workers of the Government Press have appealed to the Centre not to close the press.

With the Directorate of Printing ordering the closure of the press by December 31, the workers – 70 of them – were likely to be transferred to Nasik.

Various other political and other organisations have already raised their voice against the Centre’s decision
