Responding to a call given by the All-India Committee on Public Sector Units’ Trade Unions, members of the Insurance Corporation Employees Union, Machilipatnam division, staged a lunch-hour demonstration to register their protest against the government stand on disinvestment policy.

Union joint secretary E.V. Tulasi Rao said the policy would weaken the public sector units.

Instead of initiating measures to strengthen them, it was unfortunate that the government was resorting to such a move, he lamented.

He said people must extend their cooperation to the union to thwart the government’s move on this count.
