Former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and Telugu Desam Party chief N., in protest against the decision to privatize the Central Government's steel plant 'Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited.' Chandrababu Naidu has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to ban the privatization of Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited. Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited is also commonly known as Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.
Urging him to ban its privatization, Chandrababu Naidu said, 'On behalf of the people of Andhra Pradesh, I have written a letter to the Honorable Prime Minister Modi. In which I have requested him to find alternative ways to revive the Vizag Steel Plant.' In fact, the central government has decided to sell 100 percent of the steel plant and completely remove it from the responsibilities of steel plant management. The central government is handing over the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant to private hands. There is continuous opposition in Visakhapatnam and Andhra Pradesh over the privatization of the steel plant.

A few days ago Ganta Srinivasa Rao, a former minister from North Visakhapatnam and MLA of the Telugu Desam Party, submitted his resignation in protest against the privatization of the steel plant on 7 February. Regarding this, Rao had said, 'It is the responsibility of the CM to stop the privatization of the steel plant. All parties and activists should unite and fight this war against privatization while keeping away political bias. For this, everyone should be ready to pay whatever price they have to pay. If required, you should also resign.
