Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) has strongly condemned the move of the NDA government to disinvest the globally competitive engineering giant BHEL, the profitable oil PSUs like ONGC, HPCL, BPCL,  the Defence sector PSUs like BEML, HAL etc which are already shortlisted for the strategic sale. This is tantamount to putting the country on sale, reflecting the desperate economic condition in the country, despite the high sounding claims of the government.

The CITU called upon the workers to be ready for a serious struggle against disinvestment and strategic sale of the PSUs. It has called upon its unions to organise protest at each work place and also through sending fax/ emails to Union Finance Minister and the Prime Minister demanding ‘Stop disinvestment in PSUs; No to strategic sale’.
