BJP believes Telangana CM KCR lost grip on state
hyderabad sources stated that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on wednesday issued a statement slamming chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao of not fulfilling the demands of the protesting rtc employees and alleged that the 'head of the government has lost grip on the state'. A letter by krishna Saagar Rao, Chief Spokesperson, bjp telangana read "BJP believes that chief minister k chandrashekhar rao both as head of the government and as people's leader has lost grip on the state. KCR's multiple deadlines are not working with 48000 rtc employees on strike and the last one which expired was the third one in the last 32 days. It is a huge loss of face for KCR”.
Furthermore the statement from the bjp comes after the telangana Chief Minister's office warned the striking TSRTC staff that if they fail to resume duty by the deadline of november 5, the state government will not take them back. Apparently, when venting anger at the ruling government, the party claimed that people in telangana have lost respect for the chief minister following his notice to agitated rtc employees. Employees of the TSRTC have been on strike for the past few weeks now and they have been demanding the government to fulfill their 26 demands.
Moreover the government has clearly stated that the main demand to merge rtc with the government is not possible. Hence TSRTC workers union has been on a strike since october 5 demanding merger of the corporation with the state government and revision of pay among other demands.
