Vizag steel plant row: Agitators obstruct finance director near administrative building
After Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has made it clear about 100 per cent disinvestment in Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) on Monday, trade unions, people’s organisations, and political parties have extended support to the protest of the VSP employees and workers.
On Tuesday, workers obstructed Finance Director Venugopal near administrative building and released the air from tyres and removed the number plate. The CISF personnel came to his rescue and escorted the top official to reach safely to his chamber. Protests erupted in Visakhapatnam from Monday night onwards with the Centre’s decision.
