Thiruvananthapuram: CITU leader and MP Elamaram Kareem has hit out against Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) Managing Director Biju Prabhakar who had alleged misappropriation by the staff.
It's baseless to say that employees are the reason for KSRTC’s current situation, the MP said.
The KSRTC employees are loyal. If there had been lapses from the employees, the management should examine it and take action. It is the responsibility of the management to make the employees work. And if the staff are not performing their duties, the management should take action. The KSRTC management blaming the staff instead of performing their duty is escaping from responsibility, he said.
None of the labour unions or political parties support the employees to enjoy salary and benefits without working. If the management has any proof to say otherwise, they should reveal it.
Levelling allegations against KSRTC employees to the media is not apt for a person holding the KSRTC MD’s post. Biju Prabhakar must reconsider his statement. Various labour unions including INTUC are protesting against Biju Prabhakar, Kareem added.
