During this Sankranthi, APSRTC has been running over 5,000 special buses. Besides minister’s assurance, the RTC is collecting 50 per cent additional charges from passengers.
No one in the department seems to be taken serious of the minister’s statements. Likewise, the minister also assured the public that the government will take strict action against private bus operators, who have been running unauthorized services. The private bus operators are collecting two to three time’s higher charges during weekends and festive times. The minister promised the people that transport authorities will prevent such illegal services.
