Another construction worker dies as opposition gears up to corner YSRCP


The slump in the construction sector in AP caused due to the sand shortage has caused the death of another worker with main opposition TDP declaring its support to Janasena Chief Pawan Kalyan's rally scheduled on November 3rd. 

Nagur Vali from Guntur district was unable to find work for the past four months due to the ongoing crisis and tried to kill himself on October 26. He was undergoing treatment at Guntur Government Hospital where he succumbed to the injuries. 

Vali, a mason by profession was undergoing severe financial problems with his family stating that he had to pay wages to a number of workers under him. However, on not receiving any amount from the builder, he had to take this extreme step.

This is the second such case this month with overall six people having killed themselves dues to the slowdown in the construction sector ever since the YSRCP government came to power in May. Earlier this week, a video of another construction worker surfaced where he cited lack of work as a major problem before killing himself. 

Meanwhile, in a significant development, the TDP announced its support to actor-politician and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan for his November 3 rally at Visakhapatnam in support of the construction workers. TDP President and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said senior party leaders will attend the rally.

Pawan had requested all the parties to join this rally and make the event a success. 

Naidu on Thursday met some construction workers at the TDP office in Guntur. Speaking on the occasion, he alleged that the suicides of workers are the murders by the government. He said transportation of sand to neighbouring states led to a shortage in the state.

The YSRCP government meanwhile responding to the ongoing deaths in the state said that the recent floods are the reason behind the sand shortage in the state and that from next month the situation will be better.
