The area near Hotel Ramdev is a thriving hub for outstation buses. All the Private bus operators have their offices here and for most it is the last pick up point.
However an array of horrific sights await the unsuspecting traveller – you survive the traffic snarls (as well as the stench). And the less said about the toilets, the better!
There are hundreds of private buses which depart to various destinations from Ramdev, but for the travelers the horrific journey has just began and if you are women then its more worse.
Even when there are about 30-40 private bus operators none of them have a toilet for their customers, which is pity.
The City corporation has built one opposite the Shaikh college but regular travelers say God knows if it has been cleaned even once.
Passengers complain about the unbearable stench when they approach the said public toilet. They cant even enter it, so they prefer to go elsewhere in the open. But the women face a hard time as they dont have a toilet to go.
The City corporation had planned to install a few E-toilets at Kelkar bagh near ICICI bank, but if the same were put up near Ramdev for the travelers it would be a boon for them.
Just tagging the city as Smart does not really make it Smart, the planning needs to be smart and also the execution.
