Kavitha slams Centre’s attempts to privatize SCCL

MLC and Telangana Boggu Ghani Karimka Sangham (TGBKS) honorary president Kalvakuntla Kavitha slammed the BJP-led Centre on Sunday for its anti-people and anti-labourer policies.

She stated that the Centre attempted to privatise the Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) and that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao took steps to protect the company from privatisation while keeping the SCCL employees’ welfare in mind.

During a press conference in Bhupalpally on Sunday, she slammed the BJP for its anti-poor and pro-corporate policies, stating that the Centre had attempted to scuttle the development of Singareni by privatising it, while Chandrashekhar Rao had opposed the move.

“Due to the efforts made by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, the SCCL has benefited more than Coal India. The workers of the SCCl were not only protected by the State government but more people were able to get employment,” she said, urging Singareni workers to band together and speak out against the forces attempting to destroy their livelihood.

Making a scathing attack on the Modi government’s efforts to privatise PSUs, she said it was shameful for the union government to design a program such as the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) to sell Public Sector Units (PSUs).

She claimed that privatising PSUs would have a negative impact on the lives of many people, particularly those from marginal communities.

Talking about the vision of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Kavitha stated that the party would work in every state and grow in strength across India. TBGKS state president K Venkat Rao and others were present.

Kavitha demanded on Sunday that the Centre accord national status to the Medaram Sammakka-Sarakka jatara, one of the biggest tribal congregations in Asia.

Visiting the Ramappa Temple in Mulugu along with Minister Satyavathi Rathod, Telangana Vikalangula Cooperative Corporation Chairman Dr Kethireddy Vasudeva Reddy and others, Kavitha said Ramappa was inscribed as a UNESCO world heritage site due to the efforts of the Telangana government.
