KA Paul files petition in High Court challenging steel plant privatisation
Christian evangelist and Praja Shanti Party founder KA Paul on Friday filed a public interest litigation (PIL) petition in the High Court challenging the privatisation of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP). The High Court asked Paul’s counsel Balaji as to whether he can file a petition through a power of attorney.
Balaji informed the High Court one can file PIL under the rule 4. He also informed the court that petition filed through the power of attorney as Paul is busy visiting several countries. The High Court said that decision to submit a PIL through power of attorney will be decided next week.
