After talks with govt fail, RSRTC employees call for one day strike; Over 4,500 buses to remain off roads in Rajasthan
After talks with Transport minister Yunus Khan failed, the employees of Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) have called for a one day strike.
Jaipur: Over 4, 500 buses remained off the roads in Rajasthan on Monday as state transport corporation employees went on a strike over various demands, including implementation of the seventh pay panel's recommendations.
Unions have called for a one-day strike, but it can be extended, Rajasthan Roadways Workers' Union, general secretary, Kishan Singh Rathore, told PTI. "There are 4,716 buses with the Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC). This includes nearly 1,000 buses that are on contract, and most of them are not operating. This one-day call may be extended," he said.
Rathore said the unions held a meeting with Transport Minister Yunus Khan on Sunday, but it failed and the strike began at midnight. “Our main demands are that our salary should be as per the 7th Pay Commission's recommendations, there must be new recruitment in the corporation and new buses be purchased,” he said.
Commuters across Rajasthan faced hardship due to the strike.
Rathore claimed that about 10 lakh people use RSRTC buses everyday.
