Dattatreya urges Lalu Prasad not to close S&T unit

HYDERABAD: The Bharatiya Janata Party State unit has urged Railway Minister Lalu Prasad to reconsider the South Central Railway’s “undesired” and “unilateral” decision to close the Signalling & Telecom (S&T) workshop located at Mettuguda in the city as it would bring hundreds of workers and their families on to roads.

In a letter addressed to the Railway Minister, BJP State president Bandaru Dattatreya said the S&T workshop was set up as an engineering workshop in the erstwhile Nizam State Railway. He added that the workshop had been catering to the needs of signalling equipment to the entire Indian Railways.

The workshop presently had the task of supplying signalling material worth Rs. 60 crore and the flow of orders would continue. Reminding the Minister about his statements on encouraging public enterprises, Mr. Dattatreya wanted the former to take steps to strengthen the workshop instead of closing it.
