Pro-Telangana AP govt employees threaten agitation

Hyderabad: Alleging that the promises
made to them during last year`s strike have not been
fulfilled, the pro-Telangana employees of Andhra Pradesh
government on Friday threatened to take up an agitation once
again.

The pro-Telangana employees held the strike for over
40 days last year in support of the separate statehood demand
among others.

According to K Swamy Goud, a leader of Telangana
employees, the Telangana employees are being discriminated in
matters of promotions and other benefits for participating in
the strike.

The government promised to appoint a judicial
commission to redress the grievances of Telangana employees,
but it did not materialise, he told reporters.

The employees would hold a sit-in on March 5 and start
`work to rule` (working only as per rules), he said.

If the government continued its anti-Telangana
attitude, the employees would organise a march in Hyderabad
on March 20 and announce its future course of action, Goud
added.
