Government employees who ever had come from the Andhra region have to go back to their respective places, since the Andhra Pradesh Government has to function there. They have no other options, observed K Chandrasekhar Rao, President of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Friday. Addressing the TNGOs state executive here, he said this would help Telangana with more employment opportunities. Its employees would get promotions. He said that the new Telangana government would be an employee friendly government.
He made it clear that he had never put the Andhra employees to any sort of inconvenience. The New Govern- ment would be different from the present regime. It would grant relief to the employees targeted so far with ACB cases, harassment and suppression. The Telangana government employees would be extended a special increment on the occasion of achieving the state of Telangana. He made a fervent appeal to the employees to strive hard till the new state could surge ahead of other states in terms of development.
He said slogan “Jago, bhago” was deliberately misinterpreted and it was not intended to target the employees who had genuinely secured their jobs. He stated that there would not be any contract employment system in the new government. All the contract employees would be regularized soon. The Telangana employees would get their pay enhanced on par with the Central Government employees. Recalling his fast unto death in 2009, a turning point in the Telangana movement, he said he did not give up his fast though many leaders prevailed on him to give up the fast on health grounds.
He said he was firm on continuing the fast further. But the then Union Minister for Home P Chidambaram assured Prof Jayshankar of initiating the process for formation of Telangana on the same night. The whole region erupted in celebrations. But the joy became a short-lived one, he quipped.
