CITU regrets AITUC decision

Special Correspondent

AITUC declines offer to contest elections jointly

VISAKHAPATNAM: The Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) has regretted the decision of the AITUC to decline its offer to contest unitedly in the trade union elections in Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) held last week.

Talking to reporters, CITU district general secretary A. Ajay Sarma disclosed that exactly one month before the elections, Steel Plant Employees Union (SPEU) general secretary N. Rama Rao had written to general secretary Visakha Steel Workers Union (VSWU) D. Adinarayana with the proposal to contest the elections jointly.

This was followed by another letter by CITU State president Ch. Narasinga Rao to AITUC State president V.V. Rama Rao with the same proposal, and another letter by SPEU president V. Dhanaraju to Mr. Adinarayana.

``But they said that they were contesting as a progressive front along with some others. Had they joined hands with us, our combine could have won the elections hands down,'' Mr. Sarma said.

Percentage

The percentage of votes polled by SPEU was 34.92 per cent with 4,069 votes compared to the 38.69 per cent (4,508 votes) secured by INTUC affiliated Visakha Steel Employees Congress which won the elections. The VSWU accounted for 20.84 per cent (2,298 votes).
