| Wednesday | 9th October, 2019
A+ A-Hyderabad: The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) buses remained off the roads in Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana for a fifth consecutive day on Wednesday as employees geared up to further intensify the strike.
Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS) and Jubliee Bus Station (JBS), two biggest bus stations in Hyderabad wore a near deserted-look.
Unfazed by the government’s announcement that 48,000 employees were dismissed for not joining the duties before the expiry of October 6 deadline, the striking employees have vowed to intensify the stir.
Leaders of Joint Action Committee (JAC) of TSRTC unions have called an all-party meeting in Hyderabad later in the day to decide future course of action.
While 50 per cent of the bus fleet will be owned and managed by TSRTC, another 30 per cent will be hired buses and 20 per cent private buses.
