MANCHERIAL : Though one-and-a-half months have passed since the Singerani Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) trade union polls, in which the Telangana Bogu Gani Karmika Sangam (TBGKS) trade union affiliated to ruling Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS) got majority divisions, the appointment of the president of the employees union has not been done yet.
The reason, according to sources, is fear of infighting. The ruling party high command is fearing about the group politics especially in the Mancherial district on the selection of the president and its team.
Before the trade union elections, on the instructions of the party high command, all the group leaders came under one platform and unitedly fought against the opposition and won majority of divisions.
The Telangana Bogu Gani Karmika Sangam (TBGKS) trade union won nine divisions and opposition led by AITUC, INTUC and others won two divisions out of 11 divisions.
In Mancherial and Kumrambheem districts, TBGKS won two divisions and opposition trade unions won one division. TBGKS, which got majority, had not yet appointed the president and its team. Of the three division of Kumrambheem and Mancherial—Mandamarry, Srirampur and Bellampelly—ruling party affiliated union won in two divisions and opposition AITUC won one division i.e. Mandamarry.
However, the ruling party leaders say that the party high command will soon appoint the president of the union.
