In this connection he and the land losers contacted Ministry of Labour and Employment government of India. The ministry ordered an inquiry into the case. The assistant commissioner of labour court, Jugraj Singh took the hearing. He had ordered both the parties to appear in the hearing, but the BORL management ignored the court hearing.

He informed that on 6/12/1999, the BORL and the government of MP had a agreement to established the marketing terminal oil refinery in village Agasood, whereas the land of eight village were taken for the construction.

In various terms and conditions, both the parties had decided that the farmers whose land will be taken for the refinery purpose, the one family member will go to get a job in the refinery. He alleged that latter the BORL management approached to the government of MP to dissolve the job terms and condition from the agreement.

The court also stated that it is shocking that the memo of dated 21/5/2001 ordered by the principal secretary of revenue department is a criminal breach of trust whereby the right of land losers have been infringed.

The court conclusively state that the memo dated 6/12/1999 is absolutely fair, illegitimate and lawful and it is requested to the state government to intervene into the matter and may restore to all the possibilities and modalities and to issue immediate directions to the management of BORL for providing employment of each family member of the land loser family.
