Congress will raise tea workers’ wages in Assam if INDIA bloc wins Lok Sabha polls

The Congress leader said that unemployment is at an all-time high, but the PM mentioned it only twice in a recent interview, which was all about his ‘Man Ki Baat’.

PriyankaTITABOR: Leading a roadshow in support of party candidate Gaurav Gogoi in Jorhat district of Assam, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday said daily wages of tea garden workers will be hiked if the opposition alliance wins the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing a huge crowd while taking part in a roadshow here, she claimed the ruling party also wants to “change” the Constitution and if that happens, the common people of the country will suffer the most.

“When I came to Assam and visited tea gardens before assembly polls 2-3 years ago, I had promised to raise the wages if Congress formed the government. But you chose BJP and the wages were not raised from around Rs 250. I am again telling you that our manifesto has guaranteed to increase the wages of tea garden workers if we form the government at the centre,” Vadra said.

Whatever promises were made by Congress in Karnataka and other states ruled by the party, all were fulfilled, she claimed.

Vadra also alleged that the ruling party will “change” the Indian Constitution if it returns to power for the third term and the common people will suffer the most after their rights are curtailed.

“Farmers, workers, students, poor and all other people have one important right: voting right, which is given by the Constitution. Please use it wisely,” she appealed to the cheering crowd.
