Telangana Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao has been facing a tough time ever since the Telangana State RTC employees served notices, announcing an indefinite strike from June 11 demanding a hike in their salaries.
Harish Rao, being an honorary President Of Telangana Majdoor Union (TMU) which served the strike notice, is caught between the government and the union. While Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has warned the union to withdraw its stir, Harish is yet to hold a meeting to convince the union members.
Though the union leaders are insisting Harish to fight on their behalf against the government, the minister is maintaining silence as he will face KCR’s ire at this juncture. KCR has already asked the RTC employees to not support the strike called by the union headed by Harish.
Leaders said the only option before Harish is to quit his post in the union to avoid embarrassment from the government and also the union, before the employees go on an indefinite strike.
