High Court moots talks to end TSRTC strike

Hyderabad, Oct 15 (UNI) The Telangana High Court on Tuesday suggested the government to hold talks with the striking union leaders to end the indefinite strike by the TSRTC employees which entered the 11th day today.
The court during the hearing on a petition over the TSRTC strike expressed dissatisfaction over the attitude of both the government and the employees unions adding that it was not just a problem between the striking employees and the government but it was a people's problem.
Referring to the government's argument that alternative arrangements had been made in view of the strike, the Court observed if it was so why was the Dasra vacations for schools in the state were extended by another week.
The Court put off further hearing on the petition to October 18.
Meanwhile, Mr Ashwathdama, convener of the Joint Action Committee, which is leading the strike, said that the unions were ready for talks if either the government or the corporation invited them.
Charging that the government was playing mind game, he said the strike would continue.
