Botsa Jhansi firm on protecting steel plant from privatisation

Must read

Botsa Jhansi Lakshmi, the YSRCP candidate for the Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha seat, reiterated her resolute opposition to any privatisation efforts concerning the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. Emphasising its crucial role in regional development and employment, she denounced alliances that could potentially lead to privatization, asserting the necessity of keeping the plant under public ownership.
During a press conference on Saturday, Botsa Jhansi Lakshmi defended her track record of advocating for the preservation of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant in Parliament. She insisted that the plant’s future must remain in the public sector to bolster the region’s growth and job opportunities. Furthermore, she underscored Visakhapatnam’s significance as an administrative hub, asserting that its prosperity would catalyze overall progress for Uttar Andhra. Pledging to prioritize the development of the IT sector in Visakhapatnam, she appealed for the opportunity to maximize the city’s potential.
Botsa Satyanarayana adopted a combative stance, directing pointed criticism at political opponents, particularly Chandrababu Naidu and his Telugu Desam Party (TDP). Satyanarayana accused Naidu of obstructing government schemes through alleged manipulation of the Election Commission and neglecting the welfare of the underprivileged. In a blistering rebuke, Satyanarayana portrayed Naidu’s pursuit of victory as myopic, alleging that he prioritized personal gains over public welfare. He further disparaged Naidu’s leadership, likening his party to a “family enterprise” and questioning the credentials of his son, Lokesh Naidu, to critique the current Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy.
The exchange of barbs between these political figures underscores the intense polarization surrounding the upcoming elections and the contentious debate over industrial development versus public ownership. As the political discourse escalates, the fate of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant hangs in the balance, with each statement shaping public opinion and influencing voter sentiment.
