Former MP and senior congress leader V. Hanumantha Rao has called on all sections of the population to unite and stand against the centre’s policies against work and people.
Mr. Hanumantha Rao, along with another former MP, GV Harsha Kumar, visited the relay hunger strike camp organized under the auspices of the Visakha Ukku Parirakshana Porata Committee in Kurmannapalem on Friday and expressed solidarity with the striking workers.
During the meeting, Mr. Hanumantha Rao urged the working class to oppose the centre’s “anti-labor” policy. He also urged all political parties to put their differences aside and band together to save the public sector unity that has been the backbone of the nation’s growth.
Mr. Hanumantha Rao claimed that the Prime Minister danced along the lines of the corporate sector and was interested in handing them the power supplies on a platter.
PDSU President S. Rammohan and General Secretary A. Ravichandra suggested the involvement of students for the success of the agitation.
The committee chairmen Mantri Rajasekhar and D. Adinarayana, the convener J. Ayodhya Ram, the co-convener Gandham Venkata Rao and the CITU chairman N. Rama Rao spoke.
