Congress govt destroying govt bus service by kneeling before transport mafia: Saravjit Kaur Manuke

Chandigarh, Sep 6 (UNI) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab has supported the state-level strike by the contract workers and outsourced workers of Punbus, PRTC and Punjab Roadways on Monday. Standing in favor of the transport workers, senior party leader and Deputy Leader of Opposition Saravjit Kaur Manuke alleged that the Congress government was sacrificing the government bus service by kneeling before the transport mafia.
In a statement issued from the party headquarters here on Monday, Saravjit Kaur Manuke alleged, “To promote the private transport mafia in Punjab, the Congress government is sinking the fleet of government transport in the same way as the previous Badal government.” She said that Captain Amarinder Singh along with the Badals had destroyed the Punjab Roadways and Pepsu Road Transport Corporation (PRTC) which had deprived thousands of youth in the state of government jobs and government transport services in remote rural areas have come to a complete standstill.
The AAP leader further said that institutions like Punjab Roadways and Pepsu Road Transport Corporation were once the pride and glory of Punjab. “These agencies also operated buses on public service routes which were considered as loss-making routes. The condition of transport facilities is such that private bus owners do not run buses on the deficit routes and government buses are not able to provide services. Due to this, the people of the state are facing huge difficulties for transportation,” she added.
