Owners to face action for not operating buses

Speaking at the Karnataka Development Programmes (KDP) review meeting here on Monday, he said “we have received complaints on the owners failing to operate buses to rural areas. A detailed report on the same will be received within a week.”

District-in-Charge Minister Krishna Palemar said “we had sought KSRTC bus services to Meramajalu, Bajpe, and Chelar and the request has not been  implemented. The KSRTC should provide buses services to those rural areas which do not have any means of transportation.”

The officer from Pradhan Mantri Grama Sadak Yojane said that six works undertaken under PMGSY are of poor quality. As the contractor failed to follow the court order and repair the road, it has been decided to invite tender again for the completion of the work.
