Nizamabad, Dec 8 (INN): CPM state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram on Thursday said that the state government had failed to protect the weavers’ community who faced a slew of problems over the years.
Veerabhadram, who was in the district as part of his Mahajana Padayatra, met members of weavers community in Warni and enquired about the issues they were facing.
Speaking to media persons later, the CPM leader slammed the TRS government saying that it did not keep its promise of helping the weavers many of who committed suicides due to higher production costs and heavy losses. The KCR government which on numerous occasions promised to solve weavers’ issues has now left them in lurch, the CPM leader said. He demanded that the government should procure the cloth from weavers and use it as uniforms for employees of various departments.
The CPM leader also lamented that KCR had promised to solve issues confronting beedi workers, toddy tappers and other weaker sections but did not take any steps to empower them even after coming to power for over two years now. (INN)
