Hyderabad: Labour Minister Ch. Malla Reddy created a flutter in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday when he pitched for Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao as the next Prime Minister of India.
Criticizing the central government for its privatization policy, which will affect the livelihood of many employees, Malla Reddy said every village and state will get water, power, and other facilities if Chandrashekhar Rao is made Prime Minister.
"National parties have done nothing for the nation. These parties are continuing the same old schemes and did not provide water and medicines," he said.
Reddy said the Chief Minister created history in seven years by taking up various development activities. Explaining various initiatives taken by the Labour department, he said all the transactions pertaining to factories were made online to ensure transparency.
He said the department has provided food and other facilities to migrant workers from 15 states during the Covid-19 pandemic and sent them to their native places through Shramik trains.
He said more than 77,000 migrant workers returned to work in the city. The minister said 16 nodal employment registration centers are working in the state. He said efforts were on to make the Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Mallepally into a model institute soon.
