Left parties participate in Bharat Bandh against farm laws, privatisation of Vizag steel plant
Andhra Pradesh leaders of the Left parties took out a rally in Vijayawada on Friday in support of Bharat Bandh and opposing privatisation of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP). CPI state secretary Ramakrishna criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not meeting farm union leaders despite latter staging protests for the last four months near Delhi. He demanded the Central government to withdraw new farm laws.
CPM state secretary Madhu stated that protest opposing VSP privatisation has turned into people’s movement. “People’s movement can only halt privatisation of the RINL,” he mentioned.
