Taking to media persons, Bali said there was no decision yet on the 30 dismissed employees ( leaders). “We will consider case to case based on the affidavits submitted by the employees sympathetically,” he said. He said affidavits were submitted by the employees on the basis of realisation on their own. ”The Transport minister said the strike aimed at creating indiscipline in the HRTC. “We will not have sympathetic approach towards those, who do not work in the interest of the HRTC,” he said.
