Hyderabad: The leaders of Telangana Joint Action Committee of employees have been urged to desist from going ahead with their strike call in order not to inconvenience the people who were already faced with frequent bandhs that have left life paralysed.
The Group of Ministers who met at the at the Lake View Guest House on Wednesday held discussions threadbare and came to a conclusion to invite the TJAC Empoyees’ leaders for talks on August 5. The TJAC is representing over 20 unions who are firm on their demand for a separate Telangana state.
The GoM earlier met on July 25 and 27 but their discussions were inconclusive.
Under the chairmanship of Finance Minister Anam Ramnarayana Reddy, Deputy Chief Minister C Damodar Rajanarasimha, Danam Nagender, Mukesh Goud and Dharmana Prasada Rao discussed various issues that were raised in the strike notice issued by the TJAC of employees.
Later Mr Ramnarayana Reddy told media persons at the Secretariat that the issue of Telangana statehood was not in their hands and appealed to the TJAC leaders to reconsider their decision not to go ahead with strike call from August 17.
He was of the opinion that the common man suffered mostly due to strikes and bandhs and urged them to come to an amicable settlement. (INN)
