While the Jagan-Led government is moving pawns to merge the RTC into government, KCR is all set to privatise the organisation on the whole. On the other hand, the employees refused to yield despite the High Court’s intervention to hold talks. Amidst this chaos in both the Telugu states, the centre’s report to the High court came a bombshell to both the CMs. In the report submitted by the Advocate General (AG) on behalf of the centre, it was informed that the division of Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) is yet to be completed and the union government has 33 per cent share in it.
The Centre’s intervention in the last minute has brought a new twist in the RTC chapter. In the line of the report submitted, the centre lashed out on the states’ independent decisions on the organisations which are yet to be separated as per the Reorganization Act. This triggered the debates in political circles that BJP is increasing its hold on Telangana.
