Privatising almost 5,100 buses and asking to report back within November 5th, seems like the KCR’s deadline weapon is not working on the employees who refused to yield. Besides fifteen to twenty employees, the remaining have reportedly refused to respond to the Telangana Chief Minister’s deadline to join by November 5th else they would privatise the remaining 5,000 routes also. As the strike reached its 32nd day, the workers are giving tough times for the ruling TRS government who irked the employees with deadlines which are threats of sorts. However, with employees not yielding, the government came down with an offer for the staff on Tuesday stating that they can have the provision to join anywhere irrespective of the depot. The union leaders have made it clear that they are not intimidated by KCR threats. With the High Court hearing on November 7, the employees are anticipating justice in court.
