Kottayam: A section of the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation employees has announced a 24-hour strike beginning midnight tonight in support of their demands including wage revision, LDF convener Vaikom Viswan said.

The UDF government had not considered their long pending demands and the strike notice was given well in advance, he told reporters here yesterday.

Viswan said the government was accusing the workers of causing inconvenience to Sabarimala pilgrims during the pilgrimage season.

The KSRT Employees Association, owing allegiance to CITU, had called the strike. It was forced to resort to go on strike as government had failed to respond to its demands, he added.

Other demands included purchase of new buses for Sabarimala season and permanent employment for temporary workers.
