The Hindustan Zinc Limited, a Central PSU will be privatised shortly. The Government is having only 29.5% stake in the PSU now. This also will be sold through action. the proposal is already approved with the Attorney General clearing the proposal. The Government is expecting Rs. 16,000 crore from the sale.

One after another, the Public Sector Units are being sold to the private companies at cheap rates. These PSUs are located in central areas with a large area of land. The market prices are high. The equipment, building etc. also cost much. But in the name of liberalization, all these are handed over to the private at very cheap rates.

The Government is only the Manager and not owner of these PSUs. The people are the owners. But the Management is selling these PSUs at their whim and fancy. A strong movement should come against these anti-national disinvestment.
