The strike of TSRTC employees completed 40 days and the Telangana government is strict on its stand saying that they are not ready to merge the corporation in the government. Worried with the rising death toll, the TSRTC JAC met last evening and announced that they are stepping down from their main demand of merger. They announced that they are ready to hold talks with the government for their other demands and the merger demand is postponed as of now.
There has been a panic situation among the employees as they did not receive salaries from the past two months and are left in a huge financial crisis. After the meeting, Ashvathama Reddy, JAC Convenor announced about postponing the merger demand. He said that they are ready to discuss about the pending 25 demands. Ashvathama Reddy said that the government was not concerned about the deaths of the RTC employees. Ashvathama Reddy asked the employees to stand with patience. He also warned the government that they would intensify their protest if their remaining 25 demands are not met or fulfilled.
