The Telangana Employees Joint Action Committee (TEJAC) has decided to organise Chalo Hyderabad in the first week of December if the government fails to concede its demands.

Addressing mediapeersons at TNGO Bhavan here on Thursday, TEJAC chairman G Deviprasad said their main demands include immediate constitution of 10th Pay Revision Commission (PRC), issuance of health cards incorporating the changes and suggestions made by the employees, increase in the dearness allowance as in the case of central government employees with effect from July 1, consideration of the 42-day strike period during the Sakala Janula Samme period as special leave and withdrawal of all the cases registered against TEJAC leaders since the Sakala Janula Samme till now.

Though several representations had been given to the state government and several agitations taken up since April for constitution of 10th PRC, there has been no response from the government. In case of health cards, the government has no clarity on the issue and the process of issuing cards incorporating the changes suggested by the employees is yet to commence.

‘’We demanded that the entire 42-day Sakala Janula Samme period be treated as special casual leave but the government mooted only half day leave and the matter ended there. That way retired employees will suffer a lot. We want the government to consider the Samme period as special leave,’’ Deviprasad said.

Reminding the government of its assurance, he demanded withdrawal of cases registered against TEJAC leaders during the Telangana March.

“If our demands are not conceded by Nov 15, we will stage Chalo Hyderabad in December. As a prelude we have decided to stage protest demonstrations on November 9,’’ Deviprasad said.
