Govt selling PSUs to pamper some private players: Adhir

NEW DELHI, Nov 22: Congress leader Adhir Ranjan
Chowdhury on Friday attacked the BJP-led government over
disinvestment of PSUs, accusing it of pursuing privatisation
to “pamper” some private players.
Government is selling family silver of the country to
pursue privatisation and is doing so without Parliament
scrutiny, he said while speaking after Question Hour.
Chowdhury said, “Government is selling profit-making PSUs
to pamper some private players.”
The Speaker then told him that the time alloted to him
was over.
At this point, Congress members along with Chowdhury
walked out of the House.
The Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on
Wednesday approved strategic disinvestment in five public
sector undertakings including BPCL, Shipping Corporation of
India and Concor. (PTI)
