Prof K Nageshwar analysis on AP BJP stand over steel plant privatisation
Professor K Nageshwar said on Friday that all political parties except the BJP have participated in Andhra Pradesh bandh call given opposing privatisation of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP). He criticised the AP BJP leaders’ stand for keeping silent and not protesting the Central government’s decision.
“AP BJP leaders should realise that they are the sons of Telugu soil first and BJP leaders’ next,” he stated. Nageshwar said that the BJP’s ally Jana Sena too supported the bandh. He slammed the BJP-led Modi government for not consulting the state BJP leaders before taking decision on RINL disinvestment.
