Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy did not give any categorical assurance on treasury employees’ pen-down strike when leaders of the Joint Action Committee of Employees called on him in his chamber at the Secretariat on Friday.

The CM wanted them to meet finance minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy and get the problems sorted out.  It may be recalled that treasury employees launched a pen-down strike on Thursday that might affect payment of salaries.

As Saturday and Sunday were holidays, the matter could be sorted out with the finance minister, hoped JAC chairman V Gopal Reddy. If there was no solution, the pen-down strike would continue, he said. Treasury employees in 13 districts in the Andhra and Rayalase ema regions launched the pen-down strike. Their counterparts in Telangana too might join them soon.

Treasury employees are agitating for the transfer of director of treasuries NC Nagarjuna Reddy who favoured a separate health trust for employees. The state government is contemplating covering government employees under the Rajiv Arogyasri Health scheme. The government will hold a meeting on October 29 to discuss health insurance for employees.
