VIJAYAWADA: All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) AP secretary G Obulesh gave a call to the members of APSRTC Employees’ Union to stand united and fight for their causes, for it is the only major union in the state, post bifurcation. He also demanded the chief minister to fulfill his promises and decentralise development.

He was addressing the valedictory of the Employees Union (EU) state meeting organised at Tummalapalli Kalakshetram here Tuesday. The two-day meeting was held to select the new executive committee for AP, post bifurcation, and chalk out the future course. K Padmakar was elected as state general secretary and Ch Chandrashekar Reddy as president of the new committee.

MLC and AITUC president PJ Chandrasekhara Rao fired the BJP and TDP for neglecting the welfare of the RTC employees and warned of launching protests across the state if their long-pending issues were not redressed immediately and merge the APSRTC with the state government. APSRTC Vijayawada incharge executive director P V Rama Rao and Vijayawada regional manager G Sudeesh Kumar said that the corporation would extend all support to the EU and resolve the existing problems. Telangana EU president S Babu, Telangana EU general secretary K Raja Reddy, AITUC deputy general secretary Ravindranath and AITUC district secretary C Venkata Rama Rao and 1,100 employees were present.
