Lokayat organizes protest against AC buses on Tuesday, March 23, 2010
Lokayat is organizing a protest against the decision of the PMPML CMD Dilip Band to restart the process of purchasing AC buses, despite the fact that the board of Directors of PMPML had earlier resolved to cancel the decision to purchase AC buses. It is well known that Dilip Band was closely involved in the earlier decision of PMPML to purchase AC buses, and it was only after vociferous protests by citizens’ groups that the decision had been cancelled. So it is obvious that there are powerful vested interests involved who want the AC buses to be purchased, without worrying about the impact it will have on the finances of the PMPML, and who have now installed their protégé Dilip Band as CMD so that the AC buses can be purchased at the earliest. Lokayat demands an enquiry by the CID into the whole affair to unearth the vested interests who want the AC buses purchased even if it means running the PMPML to the ground.
Date: Tuesday, March 23, 2010
