Kerala CM against Centre's move for private post offices

Kerala Chief Minister, V S Achuthanandan, on Monday, opposed the Centre's move to allow post offices in the private sector and said it was against the assurance given by UPA Government to the LDF and employees working in postal department.

In a statement here, Achuthanandan said sanctioning private post offices was "With a view to destroy the postal department, one of the biggest public sector undertaking in the country."

The UPA Government led by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh "was not learning a lesson" and was moving ahead with its globalisation policy, he said.

Instead of strengthening the postal department to improve its services, the Centre's move to privatise postal service was against the country's interest, he added.
