Agitation Against DCI Privatization Enters 37th Day

The agitation by the employees of the public sector Dredging Corporation of India (DCI) against the proposed strategic sale of equity has entered its 37th day, local media reports. 

A decision for going on an indefinite camp will be taken shortly after consulting all the unions,” a spokesperson for ‘Save DCI JAC’ said.

Ignoring the protests from the employees and political parties, the government issued the Request for Proposal (RFP) notification for appointment of a valuer for assessing the assets of the DCI to go ahead for strategic sale of its equity.

Actor and Jana Sena Party (JSP) founder, Mr. Pawan Kalyan, recently extended his support to the employees of Dredging Corporation of India (DCI) in Visakhapatnam.

Pawan reminded the union government that DCI is a world-renowned dredging company, and demanded that the union and state governments consider the lives of the people who contributed to DCI’s development.
