Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan lashed out at the YSRCP government at the 'long rally' held in Vishakhapatnam on Sunday and demanded the government to provide adequate compensation to the construction workers. The state has witnessed at least 6 deaths due to the ongoing sand crisis with construction workers killing themselves due to lack of work for months.
The rally which began from the Telugu Talli statue in the city ended in a public meeting venue where the actor-politician addressed a gathering.
"We are giving two weeks’ time to the YSRCP government. Using the building workers’ welfare fund of Rs 1,200 crore, they must provide a compensation of Rs 50,000 for each construction worker who has lost their livelihood and an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh for the families of workers who took their lives because of sand scarcity. Otherwise, we will come to Amaravati," said Pawan.
Pawan also slammed the ruling party leaders for their lack of empathy and questioned if they can go for months wothout being paid salaries. "YSRCP leaders are asking for some more time for things to return to normalcy. But workers don’t have thousands or hundreds of crores of money like them," said Pawan, targetting Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy.
TDP leaders like Ayyanna Patrudu and Atchannaidu were also present at the event. Pawan also invited BJP, CPI, CPM, TDP, BSP and Lok Satta to the rally. The Left parties, which had contested the elections in alliance with the Jana Sena, stayed away from the march.
