Mysuru, February 20:- The statewide protest called by the association of all employees’ unions of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) on Thursday did not get any response in the city.
KSRTC buses have been plying as usual in the city and district. The students and employees who commute on KERTC buses faced no problem. However, the KSRTC employees of the city had extended external support for the strike.
Few districts in the state witnessed mixed response for the strike by the KSRTC employees. KSRTC had already cancelled the leave for more than 32,000 employees and warned of salary deduction for the day if they stayed away from duty.
A section of the unions had called for a strike on Thursday demanding that the employees of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) be recognised as state government employees. (KS, NGB)
