Telangana: Singareni workers protest against Coal mines privatisation

Hyderabad, Jun 26 (UNI) A larger number of singareni workers affiliated Telangana Boggu Ghani Karmika Sangham (TBGKS) observed protest here on Friday against the privatisation of coal mines across the country.
As part of a call given by former MP and TBGKS former honorary President, K Kavitha, the workers staged protests at all the mines of State-run Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) against the Centre’s decision and burnt its effigies.
TBGKS president Raji Reddy, TRSKV president Ram Babu Yadav and members of TBGKS staged protests in front of the SCCL headquarters in Lakdikapul in the city and burnt the effigy of the Central government.
The protestors also demanded the Central government to withdraw their decision for privatisation of coal mines and e-auction of coal mines against interests of the public sector.
Ms Kavitha, who also strongly opposed the Centre’s decision to privatise Singareni Collieries, said SCCL is one of the profit-making public sector undertakings.
To intensify the agitation, the coal mine workers would participate in the 24-hour strike on July 2.
