Vijayawada: With the APSRTC employee’s decision to boycott duties from August 12th, it will be tough time for people, especially for the office goers and other daily labour.
APSRTC National Mazdoor Union declared that they would stall all the services from coastal districts in protest against division of the State from midnight of Monday. There shall be no service to the districts or in the city as all the employees have decided to protest for united State as per the call given by APNGOs. All the buses in Krishna district would be confined to the depots. The strike is indefinite and all the employees of the coastal region will participate in it.
Lack of bus services would definitely affect the daily routine of the people. Around 80 per cent of the employees in the city come from neighbouring villages and towns like Kankipadu, Vuyyuru, Nuzuvid, Tiruvur and Gollapudi. The APNGOs have called up on all the associations, organisations, employees and students to participate in the agitation against division of the State and support Samaikyandhra.
Speaking to The Hans India, Regional Secretary of the APSRTC Employees Mazdoor Union, R Subba Rao said that the employees were fully backing the united State. Around 70,000 employees of the coastal regions are joining the strike. As many as 11,000 buses will be restricted to 123 depots in this region. “We will go by the decision taken by the APNGOs,” he added. Public are agitated over the decision taken by the RTC employees and wish the issue would be sorted out soon.
