Trade unions and workers’ federation active in coal sector raised alarm on against the decision of the Union government to open up the coal mining in the country. The workers’ outfits believe that the decision to amend the current provision in the law to allow any company meeting the minimum criteria to bid for coal mines is against national interest. All India Coal Workers Federation general secretary Mr DD Ramanandan terms the decision as one favouring the corporates at the cost of the public sector. He said “In the name of gaining high-end technology, the Modi government is handing over nation’s energy sector to the private players, domestic and foreign.”

All India Trade Union Congress said “The Government does not want to remember that the Coal Industry in India had gone sick due to the loot by the private players and had to be nationalized in the interest of development. The nation benefitted and the coal exploration in public sector was a boon for energy sector, railways, and industrial growth in various sectors.”
