Vijayawada: The indefinite strike of the non-gazetted government employees and officers from Seemandhra region will be more intensive from August 19 with even contract and outsourcing employees’ joining to make it 100 per cent, asserted Samaikya Rastra Parirakshana Vedika chairman and APNGO Association president P Ashok Babu. Emerging out of the five-hour-long marathon discussions with the partner unions which included revenue, electricity, excise, commercial taxes, municipal, APSRTC, Panchayat Raj departments and also student joint action committee representing educational institutions in the 13 Seemandhra districts, he said that they had finalised the action programme for the next 15 days.

The meeting turned down the request of the Cabinet sub-committee and also the appeals of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Union Minister Digvijay Singh to call off the strike. The meeting vowed to go to any extent to keep the State united. Ashok Babu reiterated their demand for the resignation of the Seemandhra MPs and Central Ministers to make the UPA government understand the intensity of the strike as well as their love for integrated State. The unions would hold rallies and meetings across Seemandhra on August 19 and road blockades on August 20. On August 21, they would form a human chain for an hour from 10 am on all the national highways in Seemandhra. Candle light rallies also would be organised for an hour in the evening.


Relay hunger strikes are planned from August 22 to 30. On the RTC services in Tirumala, he said that both the E U and NMU leaders would take up the issue and ensure that the RTC strike in Tirumala too would be 100 per cent.
