CPI state secretary K Narayana alleged that the government had shut its eyes to the illegal and unauthorised operation of private travel agencies.
“In some cases four buses were being run on a single registration number but the government did not take any action,” he said.
He was speaking to the media after an all-party meeting held on Sunday on the issue of private buses endangering the lives of the people with their reckless speeding.
Echoing similar thoughts, CPI (M) state secretariat member, Y Venkateshwara Rao said the private bus managements were mostly run by political leaders, hence the government was not serious and failed to take action against them. “The private bus operators have turned into a sort of mafia,” he added. The members at the meeting opined that the government failed to implement a strong system to monitor private bus operations by using modern technology.
Because of this the government has failed to prevent such accidents. They also sought for a systematic road system. “Our state has only 3-4 lane roads, while there was dire need for 6 lane roads, which the government is not serious about,” said the CPM leader.
The all-party meeting which was attended by representatives from political parties like TDP, BJP and other left parties, have decided to give a memorandum to Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy on their demands.
