According to united front convener GK Vaishnav, the employees of the power companies in Uttar Pradesh went on strike against privatisation and the government there had to bow down and withdraw the proposal. The united front has also been trying to convince Madhya Pradesh government against privatisation.

Along with this, there will be a strategy to mobilise funds for the movement and to connect common consumers.
