The NDA government’s move to reallocate and auction the coal mines consequent to the cancellation of the earlier licences, is nothing but moving towards denationalisation. The coal is a nationalised property and it should remain so. Instead of auctioning all the coal mines, these should be handed over to the Coal India Limited (CIL) for mining. Handing over the valuable mines to private companies should be stopped.

CITU and other trade unions have strongly protested against the wrong move of the government.
