Hyderabad: Uttam Kumar Reddy rips into Central, State govts for failure to help migrant workers
Takes a dig at Modi and KCR for imposing an unplanned lockdown which displaced crores of migrant workers
Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Saturday has alleged that both Central and State governments have treated the migrant workers in an inhuman manner.
He was speaking after launching a special web portal to address issues of stranded migrants in Telangana at Gandhi Bhavan. The portal has been designed by TPCC IT Cell Chairman K Madan Mohan Rao, who is also the CEO of company USMsys.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao have failed to help the migrant workers. He said both Modi and KCR governments did nothing for the migrant workers even on humanitarian grounds and they were treated in an inhuman manner on multiple occasions. He said that both the governments did not show any concern even when a few migrant labourers died on the streets while returning to their homes by walk. He said both PM Modi and CM KCR would be remembered in history for creating a human tragedy by imposing an unplanned lockdown which displaced crores of migrant workers. Following Sonia Gandhi's appeal, he said Congress leaders and workers across Telangana State have helped migrant workers in every possible way.
Meanwhile, Madan Mohan informed that the special web portal on stranded migrants was comprehensive and it works on the basis of Artificial Intelligence and accessible in multiple Indian languages.
He said that the portal has been designed on war footing basis. He expressed regret that IT Minister KT Rama Rao did not even attempt to provide this kind of service to the affected migrant workers.
Later in the day, the TPCC President distributed 'Ramzan Tohfa' to poor minority families in Miryalaguda constituency. Uttam Kumar Reddy also flagged off a bus for Oriya brick kiln migrant workers from Nalgonda to Orissa state. In Nalgonda, he also visited a blood donation camp organised by Congress party on the occasion of 55th birthday of MP Komatireddy Venkat Reddy.
