Fight for seats in buses due to non-reservation in train

Due to the uproar across the country regarding the Agneepath scheme, reservation is not being given due to the closure of trains in many states for three days. Due to this, now there is a fight going on in the buses going to Delhi. Bus operators are taking advantage of this by charging fare up to two times. Even after this, passengers are being crammed into the bus. On Tuesday, about 18 buses opened to go from Bairia to Delhi. Three types of fares were charged in these buses. There was a difference of Rs 500 in the fare for the passengers sitting in the front and rear seats. Whereas in the sleeper, instead of the right, three passengers were seated and taken to Delhi.

Normally Delhi fare is taken from 1200 to 1400 rupees on normal days. Whereas on Tuesday the fare was taken from 2200 to 2500. Sanjay Mahte of Meenapur, Santesh Kumar of Achai village, Anuj Kumar of Katra, Amar Mahte, Sanjay Pandey etc. told that the bus operator has taken a fare of Rs 2200 from Unlegaon. His reservation was canceled due to the cancellation of the train. Due to which going to Delhi by bus. Here, a bus operator told that the fare is being taken as before.

About 300 buses are opening daily for Delhi, Jaipur, Punjab, UP from different districts of North Bihar including Muzaffarpur. Even after this, the fight is such that due to non-availability of tickets for the current date in the bus, people are taking waiting tickets after two days. Any bus going to Delhi does not have a valid permit. Most of the buses are of UP and Delhi numbers. But, not a single bus has been checked in two years.

All DTOs and MVIs have been directed to investigate buses going to other states including Delhi. Time to time checks and fines are collected. For this, a campaign will be conducted and investigation will be done.
