Andhra CM to fire govt employees agitating for Telangana


Andhra Pradesh, CM, Kiran Kumar Reddy
Hyderabad, Oct 13: The Andhra Pradesh government will soon fire its employees who are a part of the ongoing Telangana agitation.

The step comes after the government and the Congress high Command indicated that there was no possibility of the issue being settled in the near future and the employees in Telangana have been on a strike from the past 30 days demanding for a separate state.

Sources also reveal that the CM Kiran Kumar Reddy, after getting a green signal from the Governor, ESL Narasimhan has come up with an action plan to deal with the employees who are on strike.

It is also reported that the government plans to take tough action against Telangana Employees Joint Action Committee leaders - C Vithal, Srinivasa Goud, K Swamy Goud, and Ashwathama Reddy and Thomas Reddy-Telangana RTC union leaders. They may face charges of violating service rules by revolting against the government and barring employees from performing their duties.

The leaders would be first arrested and then sent to a judicial custody enabling the government to suspend them immediately following which they would be removed from their service as per the government rules, said reports.

The ongoing strike in Telangana has not only paralysed the entire state but also affected educational institutions, government administration and public transport along with the judiciary.
