Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: The State Committee of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) has urged employees of the APSRTC to intensify their protest and go beyond the general strike call by taking out processions and staging dharnas all over the State.

At a press conference here on Tuesday, S. Veeraiah, the General Secretary, and Bhoopal, Secretary, termed the strike as successful thus far and said it was a matter of time before the Government called the Joint Action Committee for talks again. The CITU leaders said they did not understand why the Minister for Commercial Taxes, Konathala Ramakrishna, was hesitant to put down all the assurances of the Cabinet sub-committee in writing.
