Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy's decision to give 'full salary' for state government employees from May has landed Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in trouble.
Now, Telangana employees are demanding KCR to give them 'full salary' from May like Jagan.
Telangana employees joint action committee (JAC) on Friday threatened to intensify agitation programmes if KCR fails to announced 'full salary' for them like Jagan did for AP employees.
Telangana employees unions are questioning when Jagan can give full salary in AP, which is a revenue-deficit state, why can't KCR give full salary in Telangana, which is a revenue surplus state. KCR has no answer for this question.
KCR is now struggling how to pacify Telangana employees against going on strike.
Telangana government has no money to pay full salaries now due to financial crisis on account of lockdown since March 22. Whatever funds are available now, KCR adjusted towards Rythu Bandhu and crop loan waiver scheme, which are long pending and major poll promises of KCR.
What is shocking KCR is Telangana employees praising Jagan for his 'employee friendly policies' and criticising him for not adopting Jagan's policies.
