Vizag Steel Plant was set up 30 years ago in Visakhapatnam. Despite facing difficulties, it earned the status of a Navaratna. Even though Vizag Steel Plant is earning profits, it doesn’t have own mines. The company is purchasing raw material from the NMDC. The lives of 50,000 workers, directly and indirectly, will effect if the steel plant runs into losses. Now, workers are planning to stage a massive stir demanding the Central and State governments to allocate mines to Vizag Steel Plant.
