Hyderabad: Telangana Auto Drivers JAC has announced its decision that the auto drivers would participate in the proposed sadak bandh protest on November 18 in support of RTC employees’ ongoing indefinite strike and in response to the TSRTC appeal.
Mohd. Amanullah Khan, convener, in a press statement directed the auto drivers n the State including twin cities to leave their autos on roads on sadak bandh protest day and join the RTC protest demonstrations. He alleged that KCR, instead of “Jio Aur Jine do” is adopting new police “Maro Aur Marte Jao” cruel and inhuman approach by prolonging the RTC strike and the CM apparently wants RTC workers to die suffering heart attacks and by committing suicides out of frustration and ordered the police to crush them if they went ahead with the strike, but he will not succeed.
Khan regretted that RTC employees and auto drivers played a key role in Telangana movement and achieving the statehood. It is unfortunate that they are now suffering in the separate state with the adamant attitude of the Chief Minister.
