The government seems to be blocking RTC buses from being booked for TDP’s Mahanadu in Ongole.
Authorities are not giving buses even though the party is ready to pay the money according to the rules and rent the buses.
TDP leaders say the authorities have said yes first and then no under the pressure of the government.
On the other hand, transport officials have verbally instructed private schools and college buses to provide vehicles to transport people to the meetings to be held by the ministers from the 26th of this month.
As part of the ministers’ bus tour, public meetings will be held in Srikakulam on the 26th, Rajahmundry on the 27th, Narasaraopet on the 28th, and Anantapur on the 29th.
For this, a large number of private school and college buses are being provided against the rules. It is learned that the ruling party leaders and transport officials have pressurized the school and college management.
This is against the rule that these buses should not be used for other means except for the transportation of students.
Before the re-opening of schools and colleges, the respective buses will have to get a fitness certificate. But they are being supplied to the government program without fitness certificates.
TDP leaders say that transport officials are warning that if the buses are taken to Mahanadu, cases will be filed against them for not having a fitness certificate. Officials are also removing/ not allowing TDP flexis, flags etc. in villages.
It looks like the Government is keen on creating problems for Mahanadu.
