Three days bus strike, the invonveniences the public were put to, the observations made by the High court on a PI petition were are wonderful. HC pulled up the govt. for not taking any action. They said the buses should start to ply before they can talk about the increase of fare.  They were about to issue a summary ban on strike by buses. The division bench was very strict in its pronouncements. They even said that there wont be any increase without the consent of the court. Anyhow it is good. Govt was dillydallying with the private bus operators. Until a fare increase is demanded by private bus operators, the govt cannot bring any increase which will ultimately benefit the KSRTC, which is running on loss. Now the Govt is in a fix.
