The TDP workers are said to be upset and angry with an article published by the Deccan Chronicle on the Vishakapatnam Steel Plant (VSP).

The report is titled, "Andhra Pradesh govt. does a U-turn on Vizag Steel Plant privatisation."

"The alliance government of Andhra Pradesh might make a U-turn on privatisation of the Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd, the corporate entity of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant," said the report and cited the statements given by TD state president Palla Srinivasa Rao and Union minister of state for heavy industries Srinivas Varma on the subject.
