Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state spokesperson K Krishna Saagar Rao on Sunday alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was losing his credibility by making false statements on the ongoing TSRTC strike.
He said there was no mention of public transportation organisations in the recent Motor Vehicles Amendment Act 2019 made by the Union government. He said the Chief Minister was misleading the people by claiming that the Act had empowered the State government to privatise the corporation.
In a statement here on Sunday, Rao made it clear that the TSRTC would come under RTC Act of 1950. He said the State government had no direct power to take any decision on the affairs of the corporation.
He also made it clear that the State government cannot privatise the RTC without a resolution of its employees and the board.
He also alleged that the Chief Minister was trying to privatise the corporation as he was scared of getting a negative judgment in the High Court on November 7.
He said the Chief Minister was urging the workers to get back to their duties before the verdict of the High Court.
