Srinagar-The commuters in Srinagar city on Saturday slammed authorities for not ensuring evening transport facilities for various routes, making it difficult for them to reach their destinations.
A group of commuters told a news agency that there is no mechanism and regulation for the traffic in Srinagar.
"The babus think everyone owns a car but there are people like us who wander from one place to another to catch a vehicle to reach our homes after the sunset ,” a group of passengers told news agency.
The absence of public transport on roads after sun-set is not new, such complaints from commuters prop up every time and every time, officials promise to redress the problem and yet the problem persists.
Passengers say the student community, office goers have been facing hardships for years now, especially during winters but there is nobody who listens and addresses their grievances.
“We recently approached transporters and they started talking about registered and unregistered routes. We fail to understand why to make such discrimination when people live everywhere. Is Chanapora a registered route and Harwan an unregistered one. We fail to understand this logic,” the commuters said and blamed administration for the mess. (KNT)
