Put on hold zonal transfer policy: BJP
Bandi Sanjay seeks Governor’s intervention
Telangana BJP accused a 'busy' Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao of being 'adamant' and not listening to the 'travails of the government employees' as a result of the 'arbitrary' zonal transfers policy on Friday. "Every employee has been affected due to this lopsided policy. There are protests everywhere and the media has been highlighting the issue but Mr. Rao seems to be oblivious to all these instead of making due corrections," said party president and MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Friday.
He was talking to the media outside the Raj Bhavan after meeting Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan requesting her intervention to make the Government make necessary changes to the GO 317 - which led to the controversial transfers policy. "Mr. Rao is sitting in the CM chair due to the protests taken up by the government employees during the separate state agitation but now, he does not even have the time or inclination and talk to them to find an amicable solution when some of them are even resorting to extreme acts," said the BJP leader.
The BJP supports the employees' concerns about the zonal transfers policy where only the CM, Ministers and MLAs have the discretionary powers and no options to them. The Government does not even have a proper seniority list and there is a deliberate effort to dry a wedge between the staff, he charged. "We are requesting the employees to fight for their cause and don't lose hope, we are with you and will force the government to back down," he said.
