BJP MLA Thakur Raja Singh Lodh on Monday takes a dig oat Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao over the alleged suicide of two employees of TSRTC, saying that the Chief Minister has become ”Hitler”. He said “Surender Goud committed suicide yesterday night, the second suicide by an RTC employee. Chief Minister KCR has become Hitler, and we know what happened with Hitler. The government is responsible for the deaths of two RTC employees, who committed suicide”.
Srinivas Reddy, a bus driver, set himself on fire at his residence in Khammam district on Saturday. He suffered 90 per cent burn injuries and was shifted to the DRDO Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad where died Monday morning. And Surender Goud was working as a conductor in Telangana State Road Transport Corporation. He was participating in the ongoing RTC strike. He committed suicide on Monday at his residence by hanging himself from a ceiling fan.
“The government should take back its decision and should solve the problems of RTC employees, who are on strike and should take them back in the job,” the BJP MLA said.
The state government said it will not recognise the strike and declared it will not take back the employees into service at any cost. “Even if the strike intensifies, the government will not be shaken or afraid. It will not tolerate if the attempts are made to stop the buses, as well as organising dharnas at bus depots. We will not tolerate goondaism,” Chief Minister KCR said it on Monday.
