Victory For Power Employees in UP, Government Rolls Back Privatisation Move

Power-sector employees in Uttar Pradesh, who were protesting for over a month against privatisation, have registered a victory.

The state government has agreed to withdraw the tenders it had floated in February inviting private companies to take over various electricity distribution activities in seven districts. Further, it has given an assurance in writing that no move to privatise electricity will be made anywhere in the state.

On 5 April, an agreement was signed between the state’s Principal Secretary (Energy), Alok Kumar, who is also chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL), and the Power Employees’ Joint Action Committee (PEJAC), which was formed by the power-sector employees to fight against the state government’s privatisation moves.
