Hyderabad | 29th October 2019
TSRTC employee unions' JAC Convener Ashwatthama Reddy today criticized the State government saying it had given "bogus" details to the High Court on the RTC dues and other financial issues.
Talking to mediapersons after the court hearing in the strike case, Reddy slammed the KCR government for coming up with "wrong information" on the RTC.
He said that the High Court had slammed the State government for failing to give complete details on dues, the ED (Executive Directors) committee report and related matters. The government was not prepared to give correct details to the court, he said.
"When our advocate specifically sought them, the government counsel then urged for even more time to give the complete details," he said.
He also accused the government of misinforming the High Court and the public on the strike and financial issues.
As per the bifurcation norms, the Telangana government needed to pay 42% while AP needed to pay 52% of the Rs 1,099 crore due to the united RTC for the period from 2009 to 2014, he said. He asked the TRS Government why it had failed to give its share to the RTC so far.
The JAC Convener also said that the State government was not ready to give Rs 1,375 crore for the bus passes' subsidy and Rs 1,496 crore as part of the Municipal Act.
The State officials were evading these details in the court, he claimed.
He also accused the government of adopting arm-twisting methods towards the striking workers instead of finding a lasting solution.
