‘No compromise on repatriation of non-locals’

HYDERABAD: Criticising the Opposition parties for trying to politicise the implementation of G.O. 610, Pradesh Congress Committee president K. Keshava Rao has asked the Government not to compromise on repatriating non-locals who fail to join duties in the zones to which they have been moved.

As part of efforts to implement the G.O. in letter and spirit, the Government has given an opportunity to non-local staff incorporating provisions that give priority to those volunteering to seek transfers.

Supernumerary posts

If the employees are still unwilling to leave for their zones, they will be doing so risking their jobs, he said, clarifying that the supernumerary posts that are proposed to be created here are meant for Telangana people and not others.

In an informal chat with reporters here on Wednesday, Dr. Rao wondered why a section of political parties are criticising the ‘bold decisions’ taken by Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.

Clarifying that the G.O. deals with policy while G.O. 399 enables its implementation, he criticised the parties, the Telangana Rashtra Samiti in particular, for trying to gain political mileage out of the latest order.

PJR’s plea dismissed

The Government came out with the latest order after consulting the Andhra Pradesh NGOs and Telangana NGOs and the parties stalling the implementation of the orders will be harming the interests of Telangana employees, he said.

He also dismissed Congress MLA P. Janardhan Reddy’s demand for a joint meeting of three committees constituted on G.O. 610 as the House panel constituted on the G.O. is only an advisory body without any executive powers.

On the ‘Bhoo Poratam’ launched by the CPI(M), he said the Congress need not learn lessons from the party that was acquiring fertile lands owned by the poor in the States like West Bengal and Kerala where it is in power.
