Youth Congress demands bus fare revision

Special Correspondent

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Youth Congress will take out a march to the Secretariat on February 4 demanding reduction in bus fares, president T. Siddique has said.

Mr. Siddique told reporters here on Sunday that in the wake of the reduction in oil prices, the State government should immediately revise the fares and not yield to the pressure of the private bus owners. Activists would march to the district offices of the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation on March 5 to press for the demand.

He rejected the State government stance that the fares would be revised only after getting a study report of NATPAC. He accused the private bus operators of challenging the law.
