    AP Govt cancelled the holidays for KRISHNASHTAMI & SHIVRATRI the auspicious spiritual days observed by all telugu people. This is a very bad sign for the govt. Correction may be thought over again both by govt and bank unions.

      Other Telangana state declared Holidays for Shivaratri & Krishnashtami. It seams AP Present Govt. Will not give preference for auspicious spiritual days. That day all people will busy with Dharshan except Bank staff. Now a days Bankers job is useless, We have to obey Central Government emergency works/sudden implements it’s our duty to accept. Now a days State Govt /District Collector’s also putting some works forcefully on Banks on what authority?
      So dear friends, don’t prefer Banks.
      Prefer Central Government Jobs, Good Private Jobs and State Govt Jobs.
