While addressing the media, the CPI national secretary said, “We condemn the Centre’s attempts of privatizing government organizations including Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. It seems that the Central government has surrendered to corporates.” While talking about Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Narayana said, “PM Modi’s speech is attractive but not useful. His words and deeds are totally different.”
