Trade unions' gesture to tsunami victims

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, JAN. 10. The Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, has assured that his Government would be pro-working class. He told a public meeting here on Monday that the Government would monitor the problems of workers and take steps to redress them. The meeting was organised by the Congress MLA, P. Janardhan Reddy, to present cheques worth Rs. 40.5 lakhs for the Chief Minister's Relief Fund towards tsunami relief. The cheques were presented by trade unions of industrial units in the city, which collected a day's wage from workers in their establishments.

Dr. Reddy regretted that the previous Central and State Governments tried to alter labour laws to suit globalisation policy.

They even failed to protect the minimum rights of workers, he alleged.

He said the Rajiv Gruha Kalpa housing programme launched by him on Sunday mostly targeted workers living in rented houses in towns.
