During his visit to adopted village of Vasalamarri, the Chief Minister gave assurance that pensions would be sanctioned to beedi workers in the village. He reacted positively when some of the beedi workers complained to him that they were not getting pension.
As per directions of the Chief Minister, Government Whip and Alair MLA Gongidi Sunitha Mahender Reddy distributed pension sanction letters to 35 beedi workers at a programme held in the village.
