AP Employees Unions End Up Fighting With Each Other!

The employees' unions are meant to fight for the issues faced by employees and fight for them. The unions hold a big relevance for state employees. The employee unions work similarly anywhere. But the condition in divided Andhra Pradesh is appearing different from the other regions.

It is known that the government employees in Andhra Pradesh are fighting for salaries and other dues like DAs. A few employees met the state Governor seeking his intervention in clearing the long pending dues. Probably this is the first time we saw employees complaining to the Governor.

Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officers' (APNGO) Association and AP Government Employees Association (APGEA) are locking horns with each other on the issues pertaining to employees. Both bodies say that the other is compromising on their interests.

A deletion of APGEA led by president K.R. Suryanarayana and general secretary G. Askara Rao said that the government cheated the employees by not paying the salaries and other dues. The representatives spoke to the media and expressed their dissatisfaction.

APGEA members meeting the Governor did not go well with APNGO as the body asked why the other body met the Governor without any need. The members also said that this is not the right thing to do to achieve the benefits.

As there are rumours that APNGO is maintaining close ties with the government and Bandi Srinivasa Rao reportedly showing devotion towards the Chief Minister, the APGEA said that the body is focusing more on being friendly with the Government rather than fighting for the demands.

No one understands how the employees' unions can achieve the demands if they end up fighting with each other. Such fights make the employees fight weak. There are allegations that the unions cannot bank on the super success of the 'Chalo Vijayawada' protest.
