Hyderabad: The Joint Action Committee of Telangana NGOs and other employees’ associations on Tuesday called on Chief Secretary S.P. Singh seeking resolution of their demands on immediate basis.
According to TNGOs president K. Ravinder, the Chief Secretary has been given one week’s time to resolve issues pertaining to transfer of employees, clearance of dues and other issues.
He said if the State Government fails to resolve their issues within a week, then the employees’ associations would be forced to decide their future course of action.
Ravinder said despite completion of nearly three years, the process of bifurcation of employees between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana has not been completed. He said as many as 60 Class-IV employees of Telangana were shifted to Andhra Pradesh due to the negligence of Central Government.
He said Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao had promised an employee-friendly government in Telangana. However, he said except for IAS and IPS officers, other employees gained nothing out of formation of Telangana State.
TNGOs Secretary General Mamata said that the problems of employees, which prevailed prior to bifurcation, have continued even after formation of Telangana State.
TNGOs Honorary President and MLA Srinivas Goud and Devi Prasad were also part of the delegation. The Chief Secretary reportedly gave an assurance that he would take up the matter with the Chief Minister on immediate basis. (INN)
