I sympethise with the striking people. they may aslo approach the MLAs in their offices or at their houses and demonstrate and also th district Minister in charge to resolve theeir grievances. It is the right time that the state Government has made a scheme in relation to the Central schme for providing house sites and within Municipalities also. Hence for the delay they must be held responsible. May you get relief as early as possible and God may bless you even though you are fighting.

The labourers should get their rights, but they should not mis use the opportunity.
