The committee members G Venkata Rao and V Srinivas stated that no matter how far the Centre goes ahead with the privatisation move, private management representatives will not be allowed into the company at any cost.
The committee representatives called on people and employees to participate in a 10k human chain. Visakha Ukku Parirakshana Porata Committee members DVR Reddy, B Pydiraju, V Rammohan Kumar, Y Mastanappa, V Srinivas and VVGSD Prasad participated in the press conference.
