GVMC Council Adopts Resolution against RINL VSP Privatisation
Local media reported that a resolution opposing the 100% disinvestment of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant was adopted unanimously by the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation council in its first meeting on Friday. Mayor Ms Golagani Hari Venkata Kumari announced in the council that the resolution would be sent to the Andhra Pradesh government.
YSR Congress Party’s Vizag MP Mr MVV Satyanarayana said they were utilising every opportunity and forum to exert pressure on the Centre to change its decision.
YSR Congress Party’s Anakapalle MLA Mr Gudivada Amanadh said the YSRC is totally against the privatisation of VSP. He said Chief Minister Mr YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has already announced that a resolution would be introduced in the Assembly opposing the steel plant privatisation.
But the TDP members said how much more time will take for the YSRC to pursue the steel plant issue seriously.
