In a set back to Telangana government, the Supreme Court has directed the state government to pay the salaries of electricity employees having AP nativity till final settlement is done. “They are working in Telangana and for Telangana and naturally their salaries have to be paid by the state government only” the apex court ruled. The court set aside the ruling of Hyderabad High Court which earlier directed both the governments to share the salary burden.
Nearly 112 employees have run pillar to post as neither Telangana nor AP paid salaries for months together. They met the Governor, the President, AP CM, staged dharna in Delhi but in vain. Finally the supermen court has come to their rescue.
