CM promises houses for RTC employees

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday said that the government would focus on the welfare of APSRTC employees. “Housing colonies for APSRTC employees will be built. Every RTC employee will own a house in the near future,” he said. Speaking after flagging off a fleet of 100 RTC buses in Vijayawada to mark Republic Day, the Chief Minister said that the RTC officials should come up with innovative ideas to utilise the assets of the corporation in an effective manner to get additional income. “The profits accrued by the RTC would be utilised for the welfare of employees,” he said.

“All foreign countries are considering India as an ideal place for investments. There is a bright future for the country and AP. To strengthen the RTC, we have acquired as many as 340 buses at a cost of Rs 250 crore. About 650 new buses will join the RTC fleet by March or April. This is an attempt to inculcate confidence among the RTC employees that the government is committed to strengthening the corporation. The RTC has immense growth potential. We all should contribute to the growth of AP,” the Chief Minister said.

Each RTC bus is running a distance of 45 lakh to 86 lakh km per annum carrying 68 passengers a day on an average. “The RTC which is keen on providing more value added services to passengers is marching towards growth. The newly acquired fleet included Volvo, Super Luxury, Deluxe, Metro and Palle Velugu buses. Palle Velugu buses have been renamed as ‘Telugu Velugu’ by the chief minister,” he said.
