Answer:

If a majority of shareholders adopt an aggressive method to oppress the minority’s view, then the minority share holders can approach the Court for remedy including compulsory winding up of the company by Court order.

 

The same view was held in  Sabapathi Rao Vs. Sabapaty Press, Ltd, wherein the Court held that oppression of minority by majority share holders was a valid ground for winding up of the company.
