Will Make Million March A Success: Congress, BJP
Both the main Opposition parties of Telangana extended their support to tomorrow's "Chalo Tank Bund" rally of the striking RTC employees.
Hyderabad | 8th November 2019
Telangana BJP President K Laxman today appealed to the people and his party activists to participate in "Chalo Tank Bund" rally on Saturday in support of the striking TSRTC employees, and make it a "success" like the Million March during the Telangana statehood movement.
He said that due to the adamant attitude of the State government, not only were the lives of the RTC employees and their families being affected, even the common people were suffering severe hardship. He also pointed out that the High Court had been repeatedly reprimanding the Telangana government for failing to furnish facts. The march would gain national attention if large numbers of people attended it, and put pressure on the government to end the strike quickly, he said.
He once again demanded that the State government hold talks with the striking RTC employees and resolve the issue amicably.
Congress MLA Thoorpu Jayaprakash Reddy too said that his party would make Saturday's "Million March" planned by the TSRTC employee unions' JAC on Tank Bund a success.
He expressed hope that this march, too, would be a "grand success" like the one held during the Telangana statehood agitation.
On the arrest of many RTC workers, he alleged that instead of the Telangana police, the Maharashtra police were arresting the striking workers. He demanded that the police department clarify on the issue.
He also warned the police to be cautious while discharging their duties.
