Here… Haryana Roadways’ luxury bus plan has flopped, roadways union will protest
Ambala, Jagran Correspondent. Haryana Roadways Ambala Depot undoubtedly tops in passenger amenities. Where on one side relief is being provided to the passengers by operating long distance buses. At the same time, the bus stands of the city including the Cantonment bus stand have also been renovated at a cost of crores of rupees. But even after this, there is anger among the people of the district and this anger is not a luxury of a single bus even after being such a big depot. Whereas a few days ago, the General Manager of Roadways had informed that soon luxury buses would be included in the fleet of the depot. Its proposal has already been prepared and sent to the headquarters. But even after getting the seal on the proposal, the luxury bus could not join the fleet of Ambala depot till date.
Had to come 12, I was only 3
Haryana Roadways Union officer Jaiveer Ghanghas said that there are 177 buses in Ambala depot. The Cantonment Bus Stand is always crowded with passengers due to the border attached with Punjab, Himachal, Uttarakhand, UP and the railway station and bus stand facing each other. Therefore, the operation of buses continues continuously. In the last few days, 12 new buses were informed to join the fleet of Ambala depot. But only three ordinary buses have joined the fleet and there is no information about other buses including luxury, whether they will come or not.
