RTC workers take to the streets on 6th day of protest

Monday, 12 Apr, 3.56 pm

Workers of the four-state road transport corporations (RTC) beat plates and took out protest marches along with their family members to pressurise the government to consider their demands as bus services were hit for the sixth consecutive day of the strike.

Groups of up to 100 persons, including children and women, gathered at taluk and district headquarters across the state where they aired slogans against the government. The demand for salary to be on par with the 6th pay commission recommendations for government workers remained on top of their agenda.
