Khammam: The All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) will continue its fight in solving the issues faced by working sections, assured district general secretary of AITUC Shingu Narasimha Rao.
The 98th formation day of AITUC was celebrated on a grand note by unfurling the flag here at Mamatha Bus Stand in Khammam on Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion, Rao said AITUC had fought for various welfare schemes for the betterment of working sections across the country.
Several members and leaders of AITUC sacrificed their lives fighting for the freedom and for the rights of working sections, he added.
Lashing out the Centre and State, he said both the governments were adopting ‘anti-worker’ policies and treating workers as labours by not implementing the laws and welfare schemes meant for them.
“When other countries are charging Rs 35 per litre petrol, our government is charging Rs 75 per litre, which is nothing but robbing innocent people. Why the petrol and diesel are not brought under Goods and Services Tax,” he questioned
He further informed that to oppose the policies of both the State and Central governments, a Maha Dharna programme was going to be organised at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi from November 9.
He urged workers of various unions to participate in large numbers to make the programme a grand success.
Representatives of AITUC Anugu Gandhi, CH Sithamalakshmi, Gade Lakshmi Narayana, AIYF Secretary Nanabala Rama Krishna, Auto Union leader P Upendar, Akram, R Ramesh, P Narasimha Rao, Pasha, Lakshman, Rafi and Anumala Venkateshwarlu were present along with others.
