TSRTC Employees Not Bothered About KCR's Call:- The Telangana government and TSRTC employees are at loggerheads and the strike completed a month. The issue is yet to be resolved as Telangana government is reluctant of merging TSRTC in the government. Telangana Chief Minister KCR clarified this and he imposed a deadline asking the employees to stop the strike and rejoin. But, the employees seem not bothered and 10 employees gave their application in their respective depots and rejoined in their respective duties. 48,000 employees are on strike and they are under huge financial crunch as their salaries for September too are unpaid. But they are not in a mood to call of the strike until their demands are fulfilled.

Despite of KCR's strict ultimatum, just ten employees joined back their duties. KCR also announced that he would privatise TSRTC by giving 5000 routes to private employees. Though the government felt that most of them would join their duties for the sake of their families, it did not happen. TSRTC JAC Convenor Ashwathama Reddy said that the government is keen on privatising TSRTC instead of improving the corporation. He said that the strike would continue until their demands are reached.
