PK Mohanty, Chief Secretary to the Government of Andhra Pradesh, has on Sunday appealed to the striking state electricity employees to call off the strike in view of the formation of new governments on June 2, 2014.

You have waited so long and will not lose anything by waiting for five more days,” the Mohanty said while asking the employees to call of strike immediately.
