Speaking in Lok Sabha, UPA chief Sonia Gandhi said: "Pt JL Nehru had termed PSUs as 'temples of modern India'. It hurts to see that most of such temples are in danger today. Despite profits, their employees are not being given salary on time & they've been put in trouble to benefit some industrialists. What which is happening with HAL, BSNL and MTNL is no secret. I urge the govt to protect the modern coach factory in Rae Bareli and other PSUs & give respect to the workers and their families."
