TDP chief Chandra Babu Naidu has assured that he would develop APSRTC on par with the private sector transport.
APSRTC workers of Narayanakhed have met Naidu who was on ‘Vastunna Meekosam’ Pada Yatra. Addressing them, he has dismissed the charge of his opponents that he would privatize the public sector transport organization, if he came to power. He said on the other hand he would bring a special policy for the development of the organization and the welfare of the employees. He said Narayanakhed depot also would be developed like the Kuppam depot.
Workers have explained their problems to Naidu. He said because of fluoride contamination, water in the depot was unfit for drinking. They said there was no sleeping facility for workers halting for the night and the repair shed was in a dilapidated condition. Naidu said he would take their problems to the notice of authorities and resolve them.
WRITES LETTER TO RM
After interacting with the employees Naidu wrote a letter to the APSRTC regional manager on the problems mentioned by them. He has asked the RM to take steps to provide safe drinking water to the employees and provide resting facilities for the crew coming on long distance trips. He has also asked him to immediately have the repair shed that was in dilapidated condition. (NSS)
