The Telangana government sacked over 48,000 employees and workers of Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) on Sunday over an indefinite strike that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao called an "unpardonable crime". The striking workers had refused to end their two-day protest by the government's deadline of 6 pm on Saturday. Mr Rao a.k.a KCR, ruled out any negotiation with the sacked employees. "It is an unpardonable crime that they went on a strike during the festive season and at a time when the TSRTC was incurring a huge loss of Rs. 1,200 crore and its debt burden had gone up to Rs. 5,000 crore," he said.
