TIRUPATI: The Staff and Workers' Federation representing NMRs and casual workers of SV University on Thursday announced that there was no change in their programme to boycott duties from Friday. The federation, at an emergency meeting of its general body, pooh-poohed the university management's claim that the federation had split and that more than 100 members had migrated into the new body unable to stand the pressure tactics of the CITU. Less than ten members, that too some work inspectors who were recruited by the present set-up, had left our organisation and that was inconsequential given the fact that the strength of the organisation was some 600, said president of the federation Subramanyam Reddy.
