Hyderabad: KCR-led government seems to remain stubborn, snubbing the High Court’s orders to hold peace talks with the worker unions. KCR and his team ignoring the High Court’s ultimatum to solve the issue by 10.30 on Saturday has now triggered debates in the political circles. Neither the government, RTC officials nor the employee unions took the initiatives to end the chaos in the state.
Hearing the arguments regarding the case filed by the RTC employees, the High Court has expressed its discontent over the Telangana government and RTC management for being stubborn as most of the demands are not financially linked. The court issued orders to start the process immediately and take the necessary steps to bring back normalcy in the state. However, government remained tight-lipped and seems like this will continue until the next court’s hearing after nine days. Pragati Bhavan sources say that CM KCR is not willing to hold negotiations with RTC unions and that he has sent back the Transport Department officials who reached Pragati Bhavan on Friday night. On the other hand, the union leaders who are awaiting the government’s go on the court’s orders are likely to approach High Court once again.
