We all know the situation of the current Telangana which burning with the agitation and continues the strike from the TSRTC and consequently opposition parties are expressing their support with the employees of the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) and attacking Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his stubborn stand, here is one famous and a leader known for his straightforwardness who strongly supported KCR and called the RTC strike as immoral.
He is Mr. Jaya Prakash Narayan, ex-IAS officer and former MLA of Kukatpally Lok Sabha Constituency in Hyderabad.
He said the demand for employees to merge RTC with the state government was inappropriate and ridiculous.
He opposed the decision of the YSR Congress government in Andhra Pradesh to merge the RTC with the government.
Jaya Prakash Narayan said the strike did not mean or make any sense in Telangana.
“Employees of the RTC should work for the people. Instead of calling for a strike, they must have protested with black badges and continued their works without creating discomfort to the general public,” he stressed.
He said the government should increase the competitiveness of the RTC over the private vendors in the transport arena and subsidize the survival of the RTC.
On the other hand, Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan supported the RTC employees and urged the Telangana government to hold talks with the employees before the strike intensified.
He said the government’s decision to lay off 48,000 employees was not appropriate.
