Calling off the 66-day old strike, the pro-united Andhra employees on Thursday decided to temporarily suspend their agitation following an assurance from Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on rules governing their service among others.

However, the agitation would resume whenever the legislative assembly session is convened to see that pressure is mounted on political parties so as to prevent the state's division.

P Ashok Babu, President of Andhra Pradesh Non-Gazetted Officers (APNGOs) Association, told reporters that the chief minister has agreed to send their proposals to the Centre on Article 371 (d) which provides protection to the employees.

The Chief Minister has assured the Association that he would continue to work for united Andhra Pradesh, he added.
