Privatisation move of Visakha Steel Plant deals a deadly blow to BJP AP unit
All trade unions and political parties except the BJP are vehemently opposing the privatisation of the steel plant in Visakhapatnam. Left parties and thousands of employees belonging to the Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL) on Friday took out a rally in Visakhapatnam protesting against the Modi government’s decision to privatise it. Visakhapatnam MP M V V Satyanarayana said that he is ready to resign for the MP post if the Central government goes ahead with steel plant privatisation. Meanwhile, AP BJP president Somu Veerraju stated that he will convince the BJP top leaders and Modi government to withdraw the decision of the RINL privatisation.
