RSS-affiliate Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh Tuesday said it will run a nationwide campaign against divestment of PSUs in the wake of Niti Aayog listing 92 state-owned companies for sell-off.

"In the background of Niti Aayog listing 92 PSUs for disinvestment, a meeting of Public Sector National Co ordination Committee of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) was held in Delhi," a BMS statement said.

The meeting decided to hold nationwide awareness programme on "Save Public Sector" during September 1-7.

Unit level meetings, dharna, processions etc will be conducted as part of the campaign. On November 15, a national convention of PSU employees will be held at Delhi.

The convention will prepare a policy document on the role of PSUs in nation building, release a Charter of Demands of PSU workers and declare future agitation programme, it said.

As a prelude of this, industry wise seminars, roundtable discussion of trade unions, management and experts will be conducted during July-August.

At national level, meetings will be held with policy makers and the government. Further, parliamentarians and other dignitaries will be contacted as a part of mass contact programme, it added.

The coordination committee meeting was attended by the union representatives from coal, banking, insurance, steel sectors, among others.

Union representatives from BSNL, MTNL, IOC, ONGC, FCI, NTPC, NHPC, and other PSUs were also present.
