Rachi: Workers of Coal India Limited (CIL) started a three-day strike against the privatisation of the company on Thursday. The workers raised slogans against the e-auction of coal blocks to private parties.
Five labour unions are leading the strike and have halted mining and production activities across CIL's subsidiaries in Jharkhand and seven other states. Protestors gathered outside the Central Coalfields Limited (CCL) headquarters and shouted slogans against commercial mining.
According to Rajiv Ranjan, Secretary of the Akhil Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh, the workers are making demands against the privatisation of CIL. "We demand that the authorities put a stop to commercial coal mining in our country. We ask that the Central Mine Planning and Design Institute (CMPDI) not be separated from CIL and the decision made by the high power committee regarding contractual workers be enforced."
