The members of the KSRTC Pensioners Organisation have launched an indefinite strike against the management’s decision to curtail their pension amounts.
The pensioners have also said they are yet to receive this month’s pension and demanded the authorities to take immediate steps to disburse the amount.
“The apathy shown by the management against the 38,000-odd pensioners of the KSRTC who have served 25-35 years is callous and deplorable. For most of us, pension is the only source of income.
“The authorities should disburse the outstanding amount than tapering the funds citing financial crunch,” said P V Chandra Bose, district Secretary.
Meanwhile, association members K C Mani and V S Babu have begun an indefinite fast raising the same demands.
