RTC strike will be successful: Kodandaram

Telangana Jana Samithi convenor M. Kodandaram exuded confidence that the strike would be successful on the lines of Telangana statehood movement.

Mr. Kodandaram visited Karimnagar bus station on Tuesday to extend solidarity to the striking employees. He said that the strike had cast its impact on State politics and State government. Accordingly, the Union government had summoned Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundarajan to New Delhi to inquire about the prevailing situation, he said.

Stating that the RTC strike was replicating the statehood movement with the participation of all sections of society, he hoped that the RTC employees’ rights would be fulfilled soon. All sections of people were in support of RTC strike. The merger of RTC with the State government was the only solution, he said and added that the State government owes over ₹ 2,000 crore to the RTC.

Alleging that the government was planning to sell away the RTC properties to some people for the construction of multiplexes, he said that the government had constructed Mid Manair Dam which was leaking due to inflows and the bridge under construction collapsed in Vemulawada temple town. He called upon all sections of society to make the state bandh on October 19 a grand success. He also urged the RTC employees not to resort to suicides and fight for their legitimate rights.
