TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy today alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had failed to solve the problems being faced by migrant workers.
Speaking to media persons along with senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao, Reddy said that the migrant workers were facing the same kind of problems that the people of the country had faced before independence, and that their lives had turned meaningless due to the attitude of the two leaders towards them.
He mocked the two leaders saying that they had confined themselves to holding press meetings and were doing nothing else.
He alleged that the government was not ready to take the help of the Congress to solve the crisis. He asked the state government why it arrested VHR at Kagaznagar when he just wanted to help the migrant workers, and said that the cases filed against VHR were quite demotivating for anyone else trying to help.
Commenting on the gesture by the party leader Rahul Gandhi, Reddy said that Gandhi had become a role model for others trying to extend help to the migrant workers. He called upon the Congress leaders to emulate Gandhi and extend help to the needy migrant workers.
He also mocked the stimulus packages announced by union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman saying that the packages announced by Sitharaman much earlier were yet to benefit the people of the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Hanumantha Rao said that he would sit on a fast on to death if the state government failed to solve the problems being faced by the migrant workers. He alleged that both the state and the union governments were behaving in a draconian manner against the migrant workers. He reiterated that he was ready to sacrifice his life to solve the problems of the migrant labourers.
