Lokesh urges CM to restore services of APCOS employees

Vijayawada, Oct 14 (UNI) Telugu Desam Party National General Secretary and MLC Nara Lokesh on Thursday urged Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy to restore the services of Andhra Pradesh Corporation for Outsourced Services (APCOS) employees without causing any more sufferings to their families.
Mr Lokesh also demanded immediate payment of pending salaries to the contract and outsourced employees which is for over 20 months. Thousands of these employees were brought out of their respective agencies after the formation of the AP Corporation for Outsourced Services. But, they were later removed from their jobs so that those opportunities could be given to the ruling party activists, he alleged.
In a letter to the Chief Minister here, he termed it as atrocious on the part of the Government to do injustice to the outsourced employees on flimsy grounds. The agencies previously gave salaries to the outsourced and contract employees. All these agencies were cancelled. Later, the Government stopped salaries to these employees on the pretext that the respective agencies were no longer in existence.
