CPI(M) plea to check migration of labour

Special Correspondent

KURNOOL: Communist Party of India (Marxist) district secretary T. Shadrak has urged the district administration to take immediate steps to check migration of labour from upland mandals of Kurnool district.

Talking to reporters here on Saturday, he said, nearly 1.5 labourers had migrated to other districts from 18 mandals so far. He explained that the unemployed families had migrated because of the district administration failed to infuse confidence in them that the NREGS works would commence.

Apart from the works this year, the administration did not pay last year’s wages which amounted to Rs. 40 crore. He urged the officials to act before things went out of hand.
