VIJAYAWADA: The Joint Action Committee of Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC), which met at the Employees’ Union State office on the premises of  Pandit Nehru Bus Station (PNBS) here on Wednesday, threatened to go on an indefinite strike from February 6 if the management failed to concede to their long-pending demands.  

The JAC has submitted a memorandum to the RTC management containing 13 demands, including pay revision  with effect from April  2017, 50 per cent fitment and `3,720 crore financial aid from the State government in the budget for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

Addressing a press conference, JAC convener P Damodar Rao said talks with APSRTC vice-chairperson and managing director NV Surendra Babu on Tuesday didn’t yield any desired result.

JAC co-convener Ch Sundar Rao said massive demonstrations would be staged in front of 128 bus depots across the State on January 25.
