Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N. Uttam Kumar Reddy inaugurated two-day conference of State unit of Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) here on Monday.
The conference, being held at INTUC Headquarters at Dr. GSR Institute of Labour Studies & Research at Narayanguda, is being attended by INTUC’s District Presidents, General Secretaries and Major Federation Officer Bearers.
Speaking on the occasion, Uttam Kumar Reddy enthralled the INTUC leaders to mobilise the agriculture and construction workers against the anti-worker policies of TRS Government in Telangana and BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre. He alleged that both the governments have completely neglected the welfare of workers, especially those working with the unorganised sector. He reminded that it was the UPA Government which not only introduced major reforms, but also strengthened all the bodies connected with workers’ welfare.
Uttam Kumar Reddy advised the State INTUC to strengthen its network among workers, especially those associated with agriculture and construction, to bring back the Congress party to power in the State. He said only Congress party could resolve the problems being faced by the workers, in both organised and unorganised sectors. He also asked them to keep track of all the injustices being meted out to workers and fight against them through democratic means.
The meeting was also addressed by ex-MP and INTUC National President Dr. G. Sanjeeva Reddy, ex-MP and other senior leaders including B. Janak Prasad, Baber Saleem Pasha, R. Prakash Goud, R. G. Chandrashekar, D. Satyajit Reddy and M. Rajashekar. (INN)
