Telangana remains paralysed
The New Indian Express, 14 September, 2011

HYDERABAD: The administration remained paralysed in Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh Wednesday as the indefinite strike by over 400,000 government employees continued for the second day.

Delivery of civic services was hit in 10 districts of Telangana as employees stayed away from work to demand formation of separate Telangana state.

The “people’s strike” called by Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) did not have much impact in Hyderabad, but was total in districts like Warangal, Karimnagar, Medak, Nalgonda, Nizamabad and Adilabad.

Work in the state secretariat was not affected as about 85 percent of the employees attended their duties but the leaders of Telangana movement claimed that the employees from the region constitute only 15 percent of the total workforce. The impact was also partial in offices of other departments in the state capital.

The strike led to tension in some offices in Hyderabad as a section of employees refused to join the strike. In the office of Hyderabad district collector, the supporters of the strike had heated arguments with those who refused to join them.

In the office of the district collector in Khammam, striking employees ransacked the office of joint collector as he was attending work. (మరింత…)
