In a surprise development, KSRTC employees who have official quarters at Bannimantap have been asked to immediately vacate their quarters. This move follows several SMS sent to the employees by the KSRTC headquarters in Bengaluru asking them to vacate their houses too.
According to a few employees, some officials visited their quarters on Wednesday at 6 am and asked them either to report to duty or vacate their quarters. “We were told to vacate the houses by 6 pm and when we asked them to give their orders in writing, they backed off,” an employee said.
Officially, however, the KSRTC authorities have refused to confirm the incident. “Our officers have gone to Bengaluru for talks with the government. We have not officially asked our drivers and families to vacate,” an official said.
