Karimnagar: The Telangana government is behaving harshly with the Asha workers, alleged Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) district vice-president Bandari Shekar.

Protesting against the police for taking the Asha workers into preventive custody, to stop them from participating in Chalo Assmebly programme on Thursday, the CITU representatives and Asha Workers Union members burnt an effigy of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at Kothapalli mandal headquarters in Karimnagar district on Thursday.

Speaking on the occasion, Bandari Shekar wondered why the CM and the State government are afraid of Asha workers? What crime they did? Why the government is forcing the police to arrest not only Asha workers but also their husbands, sons and other relatives during mid-night? Is this called friendly policing? he questioned.

The government is trying to create panic among the Asha workers by arresting not only them but also their relatives. He stated that they will organise dharnas at all mandal headquarters across the district on Friday (March 13) protesting the government's act of arresting the Asha workers.

On March 19, dharnas will be held in front of the Collectorates of several districts across the State. Reminding Chief Minister KCR's statement that Telangana is a rich State, he shoots a question, "Then why he is unable to give at least Rs 10,000 as minimum salary to Asha workers? Did he not have money?"

'Asha workers have been neglected and they are not given at least uniform for the last six years. The government must discuss the issues of Asha workers in the Assembly and must immediately solve their issues. Otherwise, the CITU along with Asha workers will take a movement to teach the government a fitting lesson,' he warned.

Asha workers Saritha, Padma and CITU representatives Prashanth Anjaneyulu, Sandeep and Sai were present along with others.
