CM KCR Meets Tamilisai Soundararajan

HYDERABAD: After High Court gave green signal for Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's privatisation decision, KCR has met governor Tamilisai Soundararajan on Monday at Raj Bhavan to discuss the TSRTC strike and new revenue system of the state.

It is speculated that after the meet the state government may take a final call over the privatisation of 5,100 bus routes.

The HC had made it clear that "Telangana government has complete rights for privatising the TSRTC buses under Section 102 of the Motor Vehicle Act and it cannot interfere in the cabinet's decision."

This verdict of HC has become a major setback to the Joint Action Committee (JAC) and all 48,000 agitating TSRTC employees who are protesting for the past 48 days from October.

On Wednesday, the JAC had announced that TSRTC employees are ready to call off the strike if the government allows them to return to service without any conditions.

However, CM KCR didn't respond to their proposal as the state government has already given two deadlines for the RTC employees to join back to work. As there is no response from state government unions resumed the strike and intensified their protest across the state.
