SEC Nimmagadda’s nod not required for steel plant parirakshana padayatra: MP Vijaya Sai
YSRCP Rajya Sabha member Vijaya Sai Reddy said that permission of State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar is not required for holding ‘steel plant parirakshana porata yatra’ on Saturday. The 25-km padayatra would pass through five Assembly constituencies and would conclude with a public meeting in the evening at the main entrance of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant in Kurmannapalem. However, opposition parties are criticising the MP for organising a padayatra to derive political mileage rather than stopping the steel plant from privatisation. Ministers, MLAs and YSRCP leaders, trade unions, and others would take part in padayatra.
