Hyderabad: The Seemandhra Secretariat Employees’ Forum (SSEF) served indefinite strike notice to Chief Secretary P K Mohanty on Wednesday, saying that they would go on strike from midnight of September 2 opposing bifurcation of the State. They also sought permission for holding a public meeting in Hyderabad.

Addressing media, forum president U Murali Krishna said that Seemandhra employees working in Secretariat have been boycotting the duties for the last 18 days. It is unfortunate that the Centre had not given any clarification on the issues raised by the employees. Hence they had decided to go on strike in protest against the adamant attitude of the government. He said that all Seemandhra employees working in various departments including finance, revenue, irrigation, social welfare, mining and geology, Panchayat Raj and home would participate in the strike. After serving the notice, the employees staged ‘Mock Parliament’ depicting the Seemandhra central ministers were made silent by giving various packages to them.

On the other hand, APNGOs, who were on strike from August 12, stated that they would continue their stir till the CWC rolls back its decision. Though the High Court expressed anger over the stir by asking the employees to resign and participate in the agitation, the APNGO state president P Ashok Babu said that the employees are ready to face any situation. “We would continue our stir and face any punishment,” he said, adding that the employees would organise a public meeting in Hyderabad soon to explain their version as to why the State should not be bifurcated.

Meanwhile, Beema Bhavan and Endowments Bhavan reverberated with the slogans of Seemandhra employees demanding roll back of the CWC decision.
