Officials of the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) are requested to set up a toll-free telephone line in the city to record the complaints and grievances of passengers. On some routes, the city service buses are not following the timetable. Particularly on routes like Karl Marx Road, Satyanarayanapuram and bus route number five, passengers are facing a lot of problems due to the erratic schedules of the buses. As a result, people are forced to depend on auto-rickshaws paying huge fares. The toll-free line will also help the authorities of the APSRTC to interact with public and improve the services.

Poranki, VijayawadaStop horror shows
Television is just for entertainment and sometimes for relaxation. In recent years, media have become a powerful weapon to educate people. Most of the Telugu TV channels including news channels are airing programmes based on crime. Telecast of horrifying murder episodes and terror serials that vividly portray cruelty of human beings has become common. In some episodes, scenes are being shot in a very natural manner, which had a great evil impact on the viewers.
I appeal to channel managements to stop airing such horror shows and use the time slots to telecast healthy programmes.
Krishnalanka, VijayawadaInstall statues of Sarvepalli
In any city or town, we can see the statues of several leaders belonging to various political parties. But, the statues of great academician-turned-President of India Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan are rarely found. It is high time the State Government took necessary steps to install bronze statues of Dr. Sarvepalli on the premises of offices of the department of education in all districts as a token of respect and reverence towards the teaching community and the eminent personality, whose birth anniversary is being celebrated as Teachers’ Day across the country.

Labbipet, Vijayawada.Building norms
While approving layouts and giving permission to construct buildings, the authorities insist on applicants leaving some space adjacent to roads. Though the space is shown in the maps, we cannot see such provision at the site during/after execution of the work.
This is causing a lot of inconvenience for road users, particularly at traffic junctions. Since there is no space, it is problematic to take left turn at the junctions. The traffic police too are unable to take up markings on roads. I request the authorities to take steps to avoid inconvenience to road users.
