Congress MP Sri Vivek has toured the Singareni belt today as part of the election propaganda. MLC Venkat Rao accompanied him.
The leaders spoke to a large gathering of Singareni workers at Eleven Incline. MP Vivek remembered the contributions of Singareni during the Telangana movement. He has termed the Singareni participation in “Sakala Janula Samme” as the heart of the movement that attracted the attention of even the Prime Minister of the country. The way Singareni has played a memorable role in Telangana struggle, the welfare of Singareni will also be specially cared for by the future Telangana Congress government, said Vivek. Thousands of Singareni employees came to wish my father health when he was sick, reminisced MP Vivek.
He has also reminded the gathering that though there were several separate state demands in the country, the Congress party and especially Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi gave a commitment to the right demand of Telangana and has kept her word facing many difficulties. “My family supported the Telangana cause always, my father raised voice for Telangana standing up to the Congress High Command too, we participated in each and every Telangana agitation over the decades, my father Sri Venkata Swami went to jail during the 1969 movement,” the MP elaborated.
MLC Venkat Rao, who was also present, said “the main reason for Singareni’s present flourishing growth is Kaka Venkata Swami, Kaka organized the crucial 400 crores loan to Singareni from NTPC when the organization was struggling and was facing sick declaration by BFIR, the Singareni labour still remember with gratitude that the pension scheme to them was introduced by Kaka Venkata Swami.”
