Can terminate Vizag Steel Plant staff, says Centre in its affidavit submitted to High Court
The Central government on Wednesday submitted its affidavit to the Andhra Pradesh High Court responding to a petition. According to the affidavit, employees of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) have no Constitutional protection for their jobs and they can be removed from services if required.
The Centre made it clear that they are not going back on 100 per cent disinvestment in the RINL and requested the High Court to dismiss the petition.
“We have already invited biddings from eligible agencies,” the affidavit stated. The VSP employees have been opposing the steel plant privatisation.
