Bharat Aluminium Company(BALCO) management is proposing to close its Chhattisgarh plant shortly. It blames the closure on the increased price of coal and the loss in prices of aluminum.
BALCO was central government PSU, which was privatised and sold to Vedanta company. There was continued struggle by the workers against privatisation. Its main plant is in MP. More than 1,000 workers will lose job if the company is closed. The government should immediately intervene and save jobs of workers.
