RTC Union Leaders Mint Money While Employees Starve

Now that the RTC strike has ended  in an utter defeat to the employees unions, slowly but surely the wrongdoings of the union leaders are coming to light. Ahead of the proposed meeting of the RTC employees with Chief Minister KCR,  it has now come to light that that several union leaders are already running bus services on lease for the RTC. They are running these buses on Benami basis.

For instance, RTC JAC co*convener K Raji Reddy himself is running five buses on leased routes. Sources say that his brother K Jagan Reddy is running a bus in the Yadagirigutta bus depot. The bus with the registration number TS 30 T 1166 belongs to him. Similarly, he is running bus No AP TA 2266 in Rajendranagar depot, bus no TS05UA2171 in Kodad depot. Jagan Reddy’s wife K Anitha runs a bus in Manthani depot with the registration number TS 07UE5369. Another relative of Raji Reddy is running a bus on lease basis in Uppal depot.

There are also allegations that Raji Reddy never visits the office and is involved in several businesses. With the 52 day agitation failing to achieve anything substantial, the RTC employees are now turning their ire on leaders like Raji Reddy, who have done nothing for the poor but have enriched themselves in many ways.
