'Hold discussion with striking TSRTC employees': T'gana HC to state govt | Published: 8th November 2019 | Posted Date: Friday 8th November 2019 07:29 PM

Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court on Thursday directed the state government to hold discussions with the striking employees of the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) to resolve the over the one-month long strike.

The court also expressed its displeasure over mismatch of information about the Corporation in the government's submission before it and posted the case for hearing on November 11.


Ashwatama Reddy, Joint Action Committee of TSRTC Employees' Unions said: "Today senior officials of Telangana government came to the High Court and the court said that the affidavit which was filed by the officials in RTC employees issue is bogus."

"The court also enquired about which report should be taken as the correct one. The report earlier submitted by the Minister in the Assembly or the report which was filed by the officials now. The court has asked the officials to solve the RTC employees issue before November 11," he said.

Meanwhile, the BJP has said that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao should "hang his head in shame" for the degree of punitive statements the High Court has made against his government.

"The Chief Justice himself stated that in his 15 years of service, he has not seen any government as incredible as this one. It's clearly evident that honourable Chief Justice exposed the lies dictated by the Chief Minister in an indirect manner by canning the knuckles of the RTC MD and other secretaries with his pungent remarks," K Krishna Saagar Rao, Chief Spokesperson of BJP in Telangana, said.

The opposition party said that the High Court directive has "once again vindicated BJP's stand right from the beginning that KCR's government is brazenly lying about everything to everyone, including the honourable high court."

The BJP said the Chief Minister should mend his ways and be sensible to end "the pointless drama being played out on hapless RTC employees."
