It has been over a week now that inter state bus service between Karnataka Maharashtra has been halted. So far the MSRTC has lost over Rs. 2 crores due to non operations. A similar amount has been lost by the KSRTC in the last 7 days due to non operation.
The deficit making MSRTC in a statement today said that if this situation prevails for more then they will face a huge loss which will be irrecoverable.
The KSRTC is no different with losses due to non operations, it wants the service to resume as early as possible.
As the buses are off the road the Railway is seeing a huge rush for traffic towards Miraj. The Ekadashi is on Wednesday where people travel to Pandharpur from here, they are facing a very hard time.
Still it is very unclear when operations would commence but sources told the blog that as things have now come under control we could see these buses on the road tomorrow in phases.
Commuters are facing hardships and now if one has to travel to Kolhapur, one needs to go to Nippani and then take a tempo to Kagal and then reach Kolhapur.
People fight – people suffer.
