The Congress party came up with a innovative ‘SpeakUp India’ campaign to help raise the voice of the poor, migrants, small businesses and the middle class people before the central government.

Congress spokesperson Ajay Maken said the party leaders, workers and sympathisers will run the online campaign from 11 am to 2 pm on Thursday.

“We demand that transport be made available to all migrants to ensure that they reach home safely, increase their employment days to 200 under MGNREGA and provide Rs 10,000 as immediate financial help to the poor besides a financial package for small industries,” he told reporters.

Congress social media department head Rohan Gupta said all party leaders and workers would put out messages through their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube accounts to help the voice of the poor, migrants and small businessmen and traders reach the government.

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi posted a video message on his twitter handle as he wrote , It’s time for every Indian to stand together & speak up in one voice.

P Chidambaram, Former Finance Minister  wrote, We demand that each migrant worker family returning to their homes should be given free transportation

Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi meanwhile released a video on party’s twitter handle as a part of the party’s “Speak Up India” campaign, talking about the plight of migrant workers that went unnoticed by the central government. She criticised the centre’s policies saying that migrant workers are walking miles without any aid from the administration and small businesses have been forced to shut due to financial distress faced by the country under the serving government.
