    On Friday, TPCC general secretary Rangineni Abhilash addressed the IKP VOA protest in Kollapur. The protest was held by IKP VOA employees who have been on an indefinite strike for the past 5 days across the 5 districts of Palamuru region.

    The Congress party has extended its support to the protesters. Its leaders, led by DCC president G Madhusudan Reddy, joined the protesters and demanded proper wages as per the Labour Act. The DCC chief alleged that the IKP workers were asked to work overtime and were also not paid salaries regularly.
