Legislation to protect rural poor and labour class

Legislation to protect rural poor and labour class

 The programme will be implemented soon after the legislations are passed in both houses of Parliament.

Speaking at  convention organised by District Unit of the Congress in Hassan on Sunday, he said the Centre is committed for the welfare of rural poor and working classes in the country. The new five legislations will ensure food security, health, insurance cover, minimum wages for labourers and compulsory education for all. Already, some legislations have been passed in Parliament and the rest of them will be tabled in next session.
The people have to make use of these facilities fo their progress.

The Centre waived off of Rs 72,000 crore agriculture loan to bail out farmers from the debt trap and given Rs 38,000 crore subsidy for the purchase of chemical fertilisers to increase productivity. Unfortunately, the BJP ruled States had been implementing these schemes by changing the names.

Kharge said the Centre has provided Rs 22,000 crore for the purchase of new buses  under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission Scheme(JNNURM). But the State BJP Government has put the photographs of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and Transport Minister R Ashok  as if their government has purchased the chasis. They lacked courtesy even to put the Prime Minister ManMohan Singh’s photp on buses.
Taking a dig on the political detractors of the State Government, he said there is no need for the Congress to learn lesson from the opposition ruled states to manage administration. The party has always stood for the welfare of dalits, oppressed minorities and all sections of the society. 

Admitting that party lost power due to the infighting and failure in organisations and other reasons in the State, he called upon all Congress leaders to realise their mistakes and work for the strengthening of the party to bring the party back to power in the State. The party workers have great responsibility in this connection.
National Labour Welfare Committee President and former minister Kagodu Thimmappa also spoke on the occasion. 

MLAs A Manju, Y N Rudreshgowda, former minister B Shivaram, S M Anand, Sannaswamy, Lalithamma and others were present.
