Despite of several attempts and the TSRTC JAC ready for talks, the Telangana government is not ready to initiate talks. The Telangana High court asked the employees of TSRTC to invite the Telangana government to settle the issue at the earliest. The High Court bench comprising Chief Justice Raghuvendra Singh Chauhan and Abhishek Reddy announced it after hours of discussion in the court. The bench once again reminded that the strike turned out to be a huge hurdle and burden for the public and all the educational institutions are shut due to the strike.
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) asked the senior officials to initiate steps and hold talks with the JAC of TSRTC to look over into their demands. A review meeting was held last night with the transport officials and minister Puvvada Ajay Kumar. Earlier before this, the High Court bench said that out of the 45 demands that are made by the RTS employees, 20 demands would not bring any financial burden on RTC and it asked the Telangana government to consider them.
The court asked to inform them once the issue gets resolved. On the other side, TSRTC JAC called off for a state bandh today. Several employee unions, government officials, opposition parties along with autos, cab unions extended their support and decided to participate in the Telangana bandh.
