RTC issues notice to JAC convenor Ashwathama Reddy

The name 'Ashwathama Reddy' was all over the news while RTC (Road Transport Corporation) unions were on strike in Telangana state. As JAC convenor and Telangana Majdoor Union Chief Secretary, Mr. Reddy hasn't just led the state wide agitation but also ensured to earn support of all the leading opposition parties including Congress, BJP, CPI, CPM, TDP, Jana Sena and others.

After 52 days of strike, RTC employees have called it off as CM K Chandrasekhar Rao had declared that they would lose their job if they fail to return to work. While employees all over the state reported to work, Ashwathama Reddy went on a long leave. As he didn't report to work since a long time, the RTC  management issued a notice to him.

During the 52-day long strike, RTC employees demanded to merge the loss making TSRTC in the government. But, undeterred CM KCR was never ready to merge RTC. Recently, some union members including Ashwathama Reddy alleged that RTC management was putting additional pressure and work related stress on the employees.
