KSRTC strike enters 8th day, bus services improving

April 14, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: The KSRTC City and Rural Divisions  have started operating  more buses with workers reporting for duty in a trickle as in the past couple of days, even as the indefinite strike launched by employees of the four State-run Transport Corporations seeking fulfilment of their various demands, entered the eighth straight day today.

Today, the City KSRTC Division operated over 200 buses on city routes while the Rural Division operated more than 50 buses in the first few hours from the Sub-Urban Bus Stand. KSRTC authorities are hopeful that more staff will report back for duty and with it, the services will improve.

Meanwhile, Private buses and other Public Transport vehicles which have been given temporary permission to operate on different mofussil routes from the Sub-Urban Bus Stand, continued their operations, picking up passengers just as they have been doing for the past one week.

However, no untoward incidents such as pelting of stones at KSRTC buses were reported from any part of the district in the last 24 hours, according to sources.

  1. A V Prasanna says:

    Why Govt. is not applying ESMA, and put union leaders behind bars? K Chandrashekar is another Datta Samant in making. Datta Samant closed down all textile mills in Mumbai, driving all employees to poverty. Mill owners were happy they raked in billons conveting mills to shopping and office complexes. In the same way, all Transport Govt. staff will be jobless, Transport will be privatized, buses will be leased to private operators. Govt. happy, Private happy. Thank you Kodihalli Chandrashekar, start hunting for another Govt. enterprise for a strike.
