Naxalites urged not to target RTC buses

By Our Staff Reporter

KARIMNAGAR, JAN. 18. The newly-nominated APSRTC Chairman, Gone Prakash Rao, has appealed to naxalites not to target RTC buses and in the process displace 1.2 lakh employees of the corporation.

Talking to newsmen here on Tuesday, Mr. Prakash Rao appealed to naxalites to desist from torching buses. Calling upon naxalites to revive peace talks, he sought to know from naxalites as to why they had organised public meetings if they were not serious.

He charged naxalites with killing several people in the district and forcing several persons to leave villages.

Assuring to reduce unnecessary expenditure in the corporation, Mr. Rao said he would seek the help of the Transport Department to check plying of illegal vehicles. He stressed on the need to seize private vehicles which had been compounded for illegal operations.

Suggestion boxes

Saying that they would promote the concept of safe journey through RTC buses, he favoured setting up of suggestion boxes in all bus stations to improve efficiency and services of buses.

He expressed the hope that the Government would provide subsidy to the corporation.

Earlier, Mr. Rao travelled in the RTC Garuda service from Karimnagar to Hyderabad to meet party leaders and others.

However, overenthusiasm of party workers to greet the newly-nominated chairman delayed the bus service for some period causing inconvenience to co-passengers.
