While the media largely ignored the devastation caused to the working class, AICCTU highlighted and brought it to the attention of the Government.
AICCTU raised complaints with the state authorities such as BBMP, Safai Karamchari Commission, Department of Labour, Building and Other Construction Workers’ Welfare Board compelling them to start distribution of flood relief including ration, blankets and other basic necessities to pourakarmikas.
The AICCTU and AISA also initiated a fund-raiser for relief efforts in the affected areas for distribution of ration and education kits. Over 500 education kits and about 200 ration kits were distributed.
AICCTU will continue its struggle demanding for the provision of proper housing facilities for the working class.
