Uttam Kumar Reddy said RTC was among the biggest institutions in the world with huge assets and it should not be viewed with 'profit and loss' lens. He said there were nearly 55,000 employees of RTC at the time of Telangana formation. Nearly 7,000 jobs were lost ever since TRS came to power and now the State Government wants to completely shut down the institution. Calling KCR the most 'inhuman CM', he said that the Chief Minister did not react even after the death of 24 employees in the last 40 days.

He said neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, which is facing financial problems, was merging the RTC. But Telangana, which claims to be the richest State in the country, was not willing to help RTC. He said States like Karnataka and Tamil Nadu were running model RTCs where subsidy was being given on diesel after prescribed limits. He reminded that even Congress party, in its election manifesto for 2018 Assembly elections, had promised to merge RTC with the government and treat its employees on par with government staff.

Accusing KCR of taking unilateral decisions, the TPCC Chief demanded that State Government convene an all party meeting to discuss the issue.

He announced that the Congress would support the 'Sadak Bandh' agitation on November 19 and the party would extend all cooperation till the RTC workers get justice.
