Hyderabad: The Bharatiya Janata Party urged Governor ESL Narasimhan to prevail upon the state government to hold talks with the Employees’ Unions who have served the strike notice from August 1.
A delegation of the state BJP led by senior leaders Bandaru Dattatreya and Dr Lakshman met the Governor at the Raj Bhavan on Saturday and submitted a memorandum to him.
Expressing their anguish at the threat of using ESMA against the striking employees of Telangana region, the BJP leaders said that instead of trying to browbeat the employees into submission, the government should invite them for talks to sort out the problems.
“Invoking ESMA would be counterproductive in this situation,” the delegation said.
The delegation also requested the Governor to send a report to the Centre on the present situation in the state. (INN)
