Hyderabad | 9th May 2017
Questioning the TRS government on its NRI Policy, the opposition parties today demanded that the state government convene a special session of the Assembly to discuss the Gulf victims' problems.

The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) NRI Cell organized a seminar on "Gulf Workers Welfare - Role of Governments" at Golden Jubilee Hall, Exhibition Grounds, Nampally, on Tuesday. Participating in the seminar, TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS government was doing nothing for the Gulf victims, and that the migrant labourers were facing more troubles in Telangana than in the united Andhra Pradesh, with five bodies from the Gulf coming to the state every day

Reddy promised that the Congress would allocate Rs 100 crores for the welfare of the Gulf labourers every year after the 2019 elections. The Congress would also extend Rs 5 lakhs to the family of each Gulf victim, and extend "Pravasi Bheema" to the Gulf migrants on the lines of what Kerala had done.

"We will also provide a ration card and a voter card for every Gulf worker," Reddy announced.

Reddy also demanded that the Telangana government bring back the workers imprisoned in jails in the Gulf by extending legal help to them, and extend the Arogyasri scheme to every Gulf worker. He said that the state government must also extend special training to those who wanted to go to the Gulf countries by setting up legal centres.

Former minister Marri Shashidhar Reddy, former TPCC chief Ponnala Laxmaiah, AICC secretary R C Kuntia, former minister and TDP senior leader E Peddi Reddy, CLP deputy leader T Jeevan Reddy, former Assembly Speaker K R Suresh Reddy, TJAC chairman M Kodandaram, former CPI MLA Gunda Mallesham, Leader Of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir and CITU leader Saibabu echoed similar views.
