Pawan Kalyan, the President of the JanaSena Party, called for a march to Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh against the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP.)
Mr. Kalyan called for the massive march in support of construction workers and labourers, who are suffering due to the shortage of sand in Andhra Pradesh.
Pawan Kalyan supported the workers and said the JanaSena Party would conduct a massive march with its leaders on the 3rd of November. The march is expected to start from 8:00 A.M., from Guntur, Andhra Pradesh.
Pawan Kalyan also urged opposition parties like the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to extend their support to the huge march.
Builders and companies are suffering from shortage of sand in the State for the past few months, which is affecting the life of the construction workers and labourers in the State.
Though the YSRCP Government implemented a new Sand Mining Policy to prevent corruption in sand supply, illegal marketing and other aspects, the situation did not get any better.
The opposition parties, the JanaSena Party and the TDP, held Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, responsible for the situation and demanded action regarding the same.
Pawan Kalyan also rubbished the rumours spread by the YSRCP about the Visakhapatnam Police denying the JanaSena Party permission to conduct the march.
Mr. Kalyan took to Twitter and posted the permission letter and urged the State’s political parties and leaders to extend their support to make the march a success.
Highlighting the effect of the sand shortage issue on the workers, Kalyan, in his Twitter post, said, “It came into the light today that, two more construction workers had committed suicide in Guntur.”
The ‘Chalo Visakha’ march is scheduled to begin at 8:00 A.M., from Guntur, on the 3rd of November.
