Several APST bus plying in capital complex and different parts of state need immediate attention of the APST authority for its repairing and maintenance.
It have been observed that several APST bus which have completed its normal tenure, but authority still plying these buses which are in very bad condition. Even passengers travelling in these buses couldn’t save themselves during rain, when water enter inside the bus through broken windows.
Not only that, due to non maintenance of engine buses always got defect on road side. Once such type of incident noticed on Saturday morning when a APST bus ferrying the school student of KV-II, Chimpu from Bank Tinali got defect and students have to wait for more than a hour in the bus, after that they forced to go back to home due to no alternate arrangement by the authority.
