Bhopal: Due to lockdown, everyone is facing financial crisis. In such a situation, this crisis is also seen on the state government. Actually, Shivraj is not taking the name of reducing the problems for the government. The matter of opening liquor shops has not been solved yet and now the bus transporters are asking for relief package. He has clearly stated that the tax of April and May should be waived to compensate for the loss in permit fees and the loss due to the transportation being closed during lockdown, only then the operation of buses will be possible.
Actually, there is no concrete assurance from the government regarding this, so the operation of buses has also been stopped. The work of transporting migrant workers to the border districts was still underway through buses. On the other hand, the government is in favor of starting public transport with 50 percent ridership after June 1, except in the container zone. A strategy will be prepared in a day or two about this.
Sources say that from June 1, restrictions will be lifted from the rest of the places except the Containment Zone. Now e-pass will not be required to go anywhere in the state. The operation of trains is also starting. In such a situation, public transport will also be started for two months. However, in view of the corona infection, more than half the ridership will not be allowed. However, the transporters do not want to operate the buses until it is clear that they will not be taxed in April and May. On the other hand, if the buses are allowed to run and have to pay full tax, then there will be heavy losses.
