During Bajpayee government BALCO and Hindustan Zinc Limited was handed over to Vedanta Group through strategic sale. 51% in BALCO and more shares in HZL was sold at that time. Vedanta Group now wants all the shares to be purchased so that it will get control of all the assets of the company without any government control. The UPA government did not take any decision in the matter earlier. Such handing over will be against the interest of the nation and the workers. It should not be allowed.
