The 52-day indefinite strike has indeed snubbed TSRTC into further losses. Adding to which, the corruption under the mask of temporary staff during the strike is now shacking the grounds of the corporation. RTC sources revealed that the financial reports during the strike have unearthed huge amounts of corruption which even shocked the high command. Into details, while the RTC employee went on the strike to press their demands, the state government brought the temporary employees and buses into track rather holding talks with the RTC employees. This is where the bone of contention is!
Reportedly, the temporary employees along with a few of the depot managers took the cue of the situations filling their pockets by not issuing tickets. Even the officials agreed to the fact that the numbers shown in the books are misleading. Adding strength to the allegations, the recent RTC audit was said to unveiled this disproportions to the tune of crores which didn’t have a proper explanation from either of the officials. While the international auditing has taken place in 15 depots so far, the high command faced the same situation and are speculated the same with the remaining 82 depots also. A few of the employees demanded a probe into the issue, while a certain section of them brushed off saying that corruption involves high-level hands in it.
