The Telangana Working Journalists Union (TUWJ) has demanded the state government to resolve the long-pending demand for allocation of house sites to the Journalists.
A delegation led by its Secretary Virahat Ali met the Minister for Municipal Administration KT Rama Rao who arrived at the Press Club to attend the Meet the Press programme here today submitted a memorandum to this effect. They said its unfair on part of the government to drag the issue of pending house sites to the Journalists fraternity on the pretext of a pending court case especially at a time when the government is continuing with other welfare schemes despite being faced with hordes of cases.
He further brought to the notice of the Minister that the Health Scheme of the Journalist is not being implemented as no corporate hospital is accepting the health cards issued by the government and urged to instruct the hospitals to this effect.
The others who were part of the delegation include A Rajesh, Ramulu and Mallikarjun Reddy.
