Srikakulam: CITU and its affiliated unions passed various resolutions opposing ‘anti-poor’, ‘anti-worker’ and ‘anti-farmer’ policies of the State and Central governments on concluding day of two-day ninth district-level meeting held here on Sunday.

Speaking on the occasion, CITU State vice-president Ch Narasinga Rao warned Central government for making efforts to amend Factories Act, Industrial Disputes Act, Minimum Wages Act, Trade Unions Act and Shops and Establishments Act in favour of managements and against workmen and labour.

With the proposed amendments to these laws, workmen would have no role to fight for their rights and benefits including minimum wages, he explained.

He threatened both State and Central governments to wage a legal battle against the proposed nuclear power plant (NPP) at Kovvada in Ranastalam mandal. He alleged that the BJP led NDA government had shifted the proposed NPP from Gujarat to Kovvada to satisfy US-based companies.
