We shall agitate and protest for the cause and if necessary we shall approach the President of India and get the issue into his notice," said K Laxman, Telangana BJP president.
"About 50,000 employees are on strike against the privatisation of TSRTC," said Mr Laxman
Employees of Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) today intensified their indefinite protest against the sacking of over 40,000 employees by the state government, which entered day 25 today.
