The strike announced by the KSRTC workers' unions demanding pay reform has entered its second day.

Although the KSRTC and BMS have called off the strike, the pro-Congress TDF is continuing its strike. The TDF declared a 48-hour strike. The TDF is still on strike, completely rejecting the government's announcement of a strike.

Although the service was completely disrupted yesterday due to the strike, KSRTC aims to resume maximum service today. KSRTC's move is to provide maximum services using employees who did not participate in the strike. The strike will end at midnight today.

Although few in number, there are KSRTC buses on the streets today. With all the unions going on strike yesterday, KSRTC suffered a huge loss in revenue. To overcome this, employees are given maximum duty, including double duty, to run the maximum number of trips today. Today, long-distance services, isolated services, and major routes will be operated with an emphasis on the required routes. Areas that depend solely on KSRTC for travel are most affected by yesterday's strike.

Meanwhile, the transport minister yesterday criticized the strike in harsh language. Transport Minister Antony Raju had said that the union agitation against the people could not be accepted. He also warned that declaring KSRTC as an essential service to counter the strike would be considered. The salary revision agreement with KSRTC expired in February 2016. Recognized trade unions have complained that the promises made after 5 years are only in words.
