It’s been over 5 months Telangana has been carved out and residuary state of AP is formed yet several government institutions and organizations are still stuck in catch-22 situation. The best case is APSRTC which is yet to be divided into two state units of Telangana and AP respectively.
As per the available information, so far, only debts have been shared among depots of Telangana and AP based on the population basis. Owing to this, naturally, the 13 districts of Seemandhra bore the brunt and major share of debts were came under truncated Andhra Pradesh. Whereas majority of APSRTC’s infrastructure is located in Hyderabad and more revenue share is also from the twin cities which is hampering the prospects RTC in AP.
Adding to their woes, TRS-led Telangana government is now swiftly making moves for expansion and contemplating to buy more number of high-end buses for twin cities. Of course, this will be paid from the joint income. Ahead of GHMC elections in city, KCR is contemplating to paint the new buses in pink colour as a mark of their government.
Naturally, all these are not going down well with the employees and their unions of RTC in Seemandhra region. At the moment, they’re just want to wait and watch. The volcano would burst any moment.
