Telangana staff threaten stir over divide

TS employees in industries, factories, economics threatened to go on strike

Hyderabad: The bifurcation of state-cadre employees between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh by the Kamalanathan Committee is getting complicated by the day. Telangana employees in industries, factories, economics and statistics departments have threatened to go on strike against allotment of several AP employees to TS.

They alleged that despite some AP staff giving the AP option, the committee allotted them to TS. TNGOs honorary president G. Deviprasad, president K. Ravinder Reddy and M. Chandrasekhar Goud, of TS Group-I Officers’ Association, brought the issue to the notice of chief secretary Rajiv Sharma and urged him to take up the issue with the AP government and ensure that all AP-employees are allotted to AP only.

The employee unions’ leaders alleged that a ‘conspiracy’ has been hatched by the AP government to defame the TS government by proving that it failed on all fronts and for that purpose they are ensuring crucial positions in all TS departments to AP employees.

They said the Kamalnathan Committee has turned a pawn in the hands of AP rulers and made indiscriminate allotments without taking ‘nativity’ of employees into consideration. They said these AP employees were in turn sabotaging the TS government by creating hurdles in administration besides leaking crucial information to the Andhra Pradesh government on a day-to-day basis.

“The TS government has come out with a new industrial policy for speedy approvals within 15 days. But the AP government has ensured that AP-native officers of the cadre of deputy inspectors in factories department occupy key positions in five Telangana districts. How can we expect speedy approvals for industries with AP staff?” asked Mr Deviprasad. Similarly, the Telangana employees unions have pointed out several AP staff making it to TS government in economics and statistics department.
