Tiruchirapalli District Consumer Movement has urged the government to take steps to establish an integrated bus stand in Tiruchi. An integrated bus stand was essential in the wake of sharp rise in movements of travellers and with a view to easing congestion, the organisation said. A resolution to this effect was adopted at the monthly meeting of the movement held here recently. Another resolution appealed to the railway administration to operate the Rockfort Express from Tiruchi as well as restore other trains which were originating from Tiruchi earlier.

It wanted the government to take steps on war-footing to avoid acute drinking water scarcity during the summer season, a release here said.
