Seema-Andhra employees working here should move back to their respective places. Telangana people would work in our government. Andhra people can work for the government there in Andhra Pradesh which is New State of India.
Telangana announcement for the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K Chandrashekar Rao to kick up a storm by stating that government employees from Seemandhra will have to leave the new state, after it officially comes into existence.
About 60 % of the top jobs in government-run healthcare facilities and 52 % in government departments are held by people from the Seemandhra region, which has been a major bone of contention, with locals claiming that they have been shortchanged and ignored in the matter.
“Once Telangana state is formed, the government employees from Telangana would get their due and the Andhra employees have to work with their own Andhra government. The new state of Andhra would prosper and the Andhra employees would be happy there,” KCR told a delegation of pro-Telangana government employees that met him.
Many officials in the Secretariat, where a large number of employees from Seemandhra work, said this statement was made to “instigate” Telangana employees against staff from Seemandhra so that they quit Hyderabad by the time Telangana Bill is passed in Parliament.
“These remarks are aimed at intimidating and harassing us; people have already started talking in terms of `Us’ and ‘You’,” said S Chary, an employee.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao Friday said government employees from Rayalaseema and Andhra posted in Telangana would have to go back to their respective regions after the formation of Telangana state.
“They will have to go. There is no other option. They also have to run their government,” he said while alleging that their postings in Telangana over last several years caused grave injustice to local employees.
