Author :          

Thiruvananthapuram: Private buses in the State will go on an indefinite strike from tomorrow. The buses are calling for a strike to be raised in the bus fare. Private bus owners expressed dissatisfaction over the Cabinet approval that the minimum charge would be Rs 8 from seven. The demand for minimum tenure is 10 rupees.

The student rate has not changed. But the demand for student travel fares is 50%. The owners also decided to hold an indefinite hunger strike before the Secretariat. Bus owners say the rising fuel prices in the state are a major blow to the bus industry. Transport Minister AK Saseendran said that he is ready to discuss the association of the owners.
