All the four important associations of Government employees in Andhra Pradesh have come together to fight against the Jagan Government’s PRC. They have decided to go on a ‘strike’ from February 7th and a notice about the same will be served to the Chief Secretary on the 24th of this month.
It was also decided to hold round table meetings in all district headquarters on the 23rd of this month and rallies and dharnas on the 25th. On the 26th of this month, petitions will be given to the Ambedkar statues in all the Taluk centers. The unions have decided to hold relay hunger strikes in all the district headquarters from the 27th to the 30th of this month.
They also announced the Chalo Vijayawada event on February 3rd. All the associations have decided to fight unitedly against the Government. This is after the state cabinet in an emergency cabinet meeting decided to implement the PRC G.O.s without any changes. The employees are demanding immediate withdrawal of the G.O.s before they come to the talks.
Jagan Government is taking a big risk on this issue. The Government is known for controlling the agitations of the Opposition with an iron fist. But something of that sort can not be done to the employees as it may backfire very badly. If the Government can control, it will be damage to the Government’s image.
Also, if the government employees revolt, the real music will begin for the Government which is already in deep financial shambles.
