Suryapet: BJP State president Dr K Laxman on Tuesday alleged that TRS Rajya Sabha member K Keshava Rao was enacting a drama of holding talks with striking TSRTC employees because of apprehension that the agitation would have a negative impact on the winning chances of TRS candidate in the Huzurnagar Assembly by-poll.
Laxman, who was on his way to Huzurnagar, was addressing RTC employees who were staging a protest at the bus depot here.
He said Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was trying to privatize public transport system using the TSRTC employees’s strike as an excuse. Referring to the “self-dismissal” of RTC employees, he said people would soon dismiss the TRS government for its anti-peoples policies and unilateral decisions. “Chandrasekhar Rao will pay a price for his confrontation with the RTC employees,” he added.
The BJP leader urged the State government to step back from its rigid attitude and take measures to solve the issues of the RTC employees. The BJP will extend all support to the RTC employees till their issues are resolved, he assured.
Indirectly targeting Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli dayakar Rao, he said that it was unfortunate that persons who never participated in Telangana Statehood movement were criticizing RTC employees. Referring to comments made by Dayakar Rao before he joined the TRS, Laxman said he was a political chameleon.
Former MP P Vivek and BJP State vice president Sankineni Venkateshwar Rao were also present.
