Government’s incertitude is indirectly making public and their property suffer. In addition to the state exchequer’s financial losses due to Ministers’ and MLAs’ ‘paid holidays’, the 18-day non-cooperation movement launched by Telangana employees earlier, and the frequent bandhs called by the protagonists of separate statehood, took a heavy toll on Andhra Pradesh’s coffers.
The estimates say due to the recurrent bandhs, production declined, and from February 14 to March 4, non-cooperation stir by the 2.85 lakh government staff, falling of the output of Singareni Collieries, Revenue loss to APSRTC and many such causes led to an overall loss of Rs. 8,000 crore. This figure is likely to mount by the end of the year, as over 6 lakh employees are expected to join the indefinite strike from next month. The losses will undoubtedly leave the government reeling.
If this is the loss from Government’s closet, how could be its effect on civilians earning on daily basis.!!
