The government and the private corporates always criticise the PSUs on one count or another to ensure they can privatise them without opposition. But what is the reality? It is these PSUs which are in the front in acts of social responsibility. One example is given below:

The following PSUs have taken the responsibility of cleaning the ten tourist/religious places:

  1. Hindustan Zinc – Ajmer Sharif Dargah
  2. SBI – Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai
  3. IOC – Mata Vaishno Devi Temple
  4. HPCL – Golden Temple, Amritsar
  5. Oil India – Kamakhya Devi Temple, Assam
  6. Coal India – Manikarnika Ghat, Varanasi
  7. BPCL – Meenakshi Temple, Madurai
  8. GAIL – Taj Mahal, Agra
  9. Northern Coal Field – Tirupati Balaji Temple
  10. NALCO – Shri Jagannatha Temple, Puri

Where are the private corporates in this competition? They are nowhere. They are busy with increasing  their profits!
