New Delhi, Feb 8 (UNI) In a letter to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, Member of Parliament of the Comunist Party of India (Marxists) Tapan Sen today said the government's policy in reviving the sick public sector undertaking should meet uniform treatment and be non-discriminatory for all companies.
The Union Cabinet at its meeting held yesterday decided to revive the Bharat Wagon and Engineering company but the MP expressed great shock for ignoring the cause of the revival of the West Bengal-based two leading wagon PSU companies namely Burn Standard Limited and Ms Braithwaite.
Mr Sen in his letter pointed out that these two units have been languishing for years under BIFR and transfer of control of these two PSUs after restructuring, to Railways in line with Bharat Wagon Engineer will benefit both Railways and the PSU wagon industry.
''Moreover, Government's policy of handling sick wagon shold not smack of any discrimination and lack of uniformity, which I am afraid, is clearly discrenible in this case,'' the letter said.
He urged the Prime Minister to ask the Railways to take over the wagon making units of Burn Standard and Braithwaite along with units of Bharat Wagon.
Ministry of Railways should be advised accordingly to convey its views on Ms Burn Standard in BIFR hearing on February 27, 2008, where they have been called in the BIFR case pertaining to sickness of Ms Burn Standard Ltd, the letter added.
