AP NGOs to Continue Strike as Talks Fail
Hyderabad, August 14 (INN): The indefinite strike launched by nearly four lakh employees affiliated with the Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officers (APNGOs) Association demanding that the Centre keep State united would continue following failure of talks between the striking employees and State Government.
