Amaravati: Seeking the central government’s intervention in the Sand Policy introduced by Jagan-led government, JanaSena chief Pawan Kalyan breathed fire on the proposal to reduce Goods Service Tax (GST) on sand lorries. In a media meet on Sunday, the actor-turned-politician claimed that the ‘chaotic’ policy pushed 19.6 lakh workers’ life into uncertainty and another one million workers indirectly out of a job. He then emphasised on the rally ‘Chalo Visakhapatnam’ being held in support of the construction workers.
Pawan urged the central government to look into the issue as soon as possible as the repeated appeals to the state government failed. ‘In our recent meeting held with the construction workers, they expressed deep concern over the situation in Amaravati as almost all the constructions came to halt. Their families are literally on roads starving,” he added. Pawan Kalyan expressed his discontent over the state government for turning a blind eye on the burning issue.
On this note, Pawan Kalyan announced Rs 1 lakh to the family of Naga Brahmaji, a construction worker who committed suicide.
