Village Revenue Assistants (VRAs) are raising concerns about the implementation of the promises given by CM KCR. The JAC of VRAs has called for all VRAs to stay away from duty from Monday. For three days, the VRAs have been conducting relay initiations at the district centers and collectorates with the demands of implementation of the pay scale, job security, promotions for the deserving, compassionate provisions, etc. In this background, Minister Errabelli Dayakar was restricted from entering the Janagama district. His convoy was blocked on the road.
Relay hunger strikes by VRAs are continuing, demanding that fair issues be resolved. Although it is raining heavily, VRAs are participating in the initiation in large numbers. Meanwhile, there was tension at Janagama District Collector’s office. A skirmish broke out when the protesting VRAs blocked the convoy of Minister Dayakar Rao, who had come for a review meeting on the flood.
A scuffle broke out between the VRAs and the police as the latter blocked the convoy of Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao. The police stopped the VRAs who tried to enter the collectorate.
On the other hand, even after picketing the district offices for their demands, the VRAs are warning that a strike is inevitable from the 25th of this month if the state government does not resolve the issue. They are demanding that the government should hold talks with the VRAs and resolve the issue without resorting to rhetoric.
