The trade union leaders protested today against the decision to privatize the Visakha Steel Plant. They are angered by the recent announcement by the Center that the process of disinvestment in RINL is in progress. In this order, a padayatra was organized from Steel Plant Gate to Simhachalam. Many organizations have announced their support for this march. All the participants in the march raised slogans against the central government, asking them not to privatize the Visakha Steel Plant. Former CBI JD Lakshminarayana also participated in this padayatra. He made a sensational statement on this occasion.
Visakha Steel Plant workers said today’s walkout was only a trailer. They said that they will show the original movie soon. He said that if the policy of the center is privatization, then we will show how the people will fight back.
He said that he is also one of those who want the steel plant to be good. Former CBI JD Lakshminarayan added, “We will participate in Visakha Steel Plant EVO bidding with Support of people.”
On the other side, the Center once again clarified that the privatization of Visakha Steel Plant has not stopped.

But the next day. Union Ministry of Steel issued a statement on Friday that there is no freeze on RINL’s disinvestment process.
