Did the Britishers leave the spinning wheel: Sudhanshu Trivedi
On Shiv Sena's stance, BJP MP Sudhanshu Trivedi said, “Corona is the biggest disaster ever. Just like Gandhi had made the charkha a symbol to drive away the British. Similarly, Prime Minister Modi has made Diyas a symbol of social consciousness. Some people are asking if playing clap ends the corona, then I want to ask them if people have forgotten history? Did the British leave by spinning the wheel? Charkha was a symbol chosen by Gandhiji. Similarly, clapping the thali was a symbol through which attempts were made to raise the morale of the Corona warriors. '
Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust may not be privatized
Sanjay Raut of Shiv Sena raised the issue of privatization of Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in zero hour. He said that due to demonetisation and Kovid-19 epidemic, the country's economic system has collapsed badly. Our GDP and our Reserve Bank have also collapsed.
He said that this is the reason why today Railways, LIC, Air India are being privatized. JNPT is a profitable venture and gives more than 30% of profits to the government. The government is considering its privatization. Its privatization means deep damage to national wealth. After the Navy during the war, this port has also played an important role in the transportation of logistics.
He said, 'Privatization of this Port Trust means giving 7,000 acres of land in private hands. This will also increase unemployment because workers will be laid off first when privatization takes place. It is an important port and also special in terms of national security.
