Pay Revision Commission (PRC) union leaders Sadhana Samithi have given indefinite strike notice to the government of Andhra Pradesh announcing a strike from midnight on February 6th.

PRC Sadhana Samithi consists of employees, teachers, retirees and other unions.

The various employee associations protest against the order of the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy regime to implement the recommendations of the 11th PRC.

State employees and teachers are opposed to the latest salary scales of the PRC (salary review committee) because they fear a downward revision of salaries.

As many as 20 members of the organization’s steering committee filed a strike notice to Principal Secretary Shashi Bhushn Kumar at the secretariat on Monday, January 24.

Meanwhile, government adviser Sajjala Ramkrishan Reddy has urged staff not to take extreme measures as the government seeks to discuss and resolve the issue.

Meanwhile, the PRC employees’ committee organized a rally in Vijayawada, to protest against the government’s decision.

The Andhra Pradesh BJP has also extended its support to employees. Rajya Sabha Party MP GVL Narasimha Rao, CM Ramesh and Head of State Unit Somy Veeraraju took part in a protest at the party office.
