Is Telangana CM Kcr turning out to be a dictator? Is he following Tamil Nadu's late CM Jayalalitha's footsteps in dealing with employees? According Telangana RTC employees the answer is 'yes'.
Soon after assuming power in 2014, Kcr sang the tune of employees and announced Telangana state's special increment for the employed. He lauded them as the pillars of Telangnaa formation. Employees hailed him as the best ever CM.
However, thereafter, no signs of any favour done to employees and their rights have also not been respected. Employees PRC has been delayed and no IR itself was sanctioned.Furthermore, there was a proposal from the government the PRC would be implemented once per 10 years instead of 5 years. Mysteriously, the leaders of employees too kept dumb on all these issues.
And now, TSRTC employees are agitating to get them merged in the government. On the contrary, Kcr is inclined towards the privatization of RTC. Shockingly, RTC employees, who had been agitating for their rights were dismissed. Long back, Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalitha too turned a dictator towards thousands of employees and made them dismissed. Of course, they got their posts back after a prolonged fight against the government. Moreover, Jayalalitha faced a humiliating defeat in the next general poll battle.
"Ever since TRS has come into power again in 2019, the party developed unnecessary haughtiness in administration. If it sheds it, the government win people's hearts, else, it would face risk in next general elections," says a political observer.
