The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation’s (TSRTC) bus depots, which were until Thursday occupied with policemen, witnessed festive-like scenes with striking workers returning to duty following Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s approval.

They were jubilant to retain their jobs and get back to work after nearly two months. The drivers, conductors, mechanics, assistants and artisans joined duty from 5 am. They thanked Rao for allowing them to join the corporation despite the 54-day strike launched in demand of job security and merger of the public transportation system with government, among others. They were visibly elated to have been offered the opportunity to continue to work.

Many RTC workers lashed out at the trade unions for launching the strike and stopping it abruptly. “The unions began the strike, but they ended it without achieving goals. They have their interests in carrying out the agitation,” a driver alleged. They said they realised their mistake and would never trust union leaders in the future.
