Andhra Pradesh: Whether the employees are on the side of SAIL… Center is on the side of Adani! Where are Babu and Pawan? | Telugu News


Which side are Chandrababu and Pawan Kalyan on Visakha steel plant privatization issue

Visakha Steel Plant: The issue of privatization of Visakha steel plant is once again in the news. Citing losses, the central government decided to privatize the factory last year. As part of this, bids were invited from private companies. In the meantime, elections are coming.. As the political developments are changing rapidly, the Center has taken a step back. At that time, Opposition Leaders Chandrababu Naidu and Pawan Kalyan had promised to save the Visakha Steel Plant from privatization. In fact, despite having a handful of MPs at that time, the ruling YCP did not make any statement against the privatization of the Visakhapatnam steel plant. At least he did not speak a single word against the central government's decision. That is why the alliance won a huge victory in the previous elections in Visakhapatnam district. Until recently, the workers thought that the privatization of Visakhapatnam steel plant would be stopped in view of the participation of the coalition MPs in the present central government. However, there are signs that the Center is taking steps towards privatization of Visakhapatnam steel plant. As part of this, Union Minister Kumaraswamy on Thursday started discussions with the workers working in Visakhapatnam steel plant. According to reliable sources, the Center had earlier decided to give Visakhapatnam steel plant to Adani. However, the decision was temporarily shelved due to public outcry and anger from the workers. After how many days the case of privatization of Visakha factory came to the fore. Union Minister Kumaraswamy is holding talks with the workers.

The workers of Visakhapatnam steel plant are totally opposed to privatisation. “32 people sacrificed their lives to stop Visakhapatnam steel plant from going to Odisha. People of 64 villages gave 22 thousand acres for Visakha steel industry. If the Visakha Steel plant with such a history of sacrifice goes into the hands of private individuals, our entire livelihood will be lost. All our employment will be destroyed. 32 people sacrificed their lives to benefit private individuals? The people of 64 villages gave twenty-two thousand acres to a private company to make profits?” That is what the leaders of labor unions are asking. The workers are demanding that the Visakha steel plant should not be privatized and should be included in the Central Government owned Steel Authority of India Limited. Workers say that if the Visakha sub factory comes under SAIL, it will be possible to produce 70 lakh tonnes of steel every year. They explain that this will save 30 thousand crore rupees. Production efficiency is also said to increase. Union leaders say that the merger with SAIL will solve the shortage of mines in the Visakhapatnam steel plant. “The cost of production will come down to Rs 6000 per tonne. Through Gangavaram and Visakhapatnam ports, Visakha steel can be transported to other areas. There is scope for increasing production capacity to 50 lakh tonnes. In that case, the central government should stop privatization,” say the leaders of the labor unions.

At present, alliance MPs are crucial at the centre. Two MPs in the alliance also got posts. At a time like this, arguments are being heard that Chandrababu Naidu and Pawan Kalyan should oppose the privatization of Visakha Steel Plant. They said the same thing repeatedly during the elections. That is why the people of Visakhapatnam district have given their support to the alliance. Pawan Kalyan and Chandrababu Naidu should take initiative in Visakha Steel Plant issue keeping in mind the judgment given by the people. Privatization should be totally opposed. Since Visakhapatnam steel plant is in SAIL, the merger means not only the plant but also the face of Visakhapatnam. Chandrababu Naidu and Pawan Kalyan should pay attention to this matter,” the workers of the Visakhapatnam steel plant want. And we have to wait and see what decision Pawan Kalyan and Chandrababu will announce on this.
