    Please strike all over the country and stay on strike so that the rest of the country can breath at ease.

    Why 28th ?. Should have brought back 2 days forward . 26th Monday.

    As one minister said all the problems relating to public transport services will be solved once the buses have been painted in red, blue and yellow (not in green I suppose)

    Nationalise all private buses , because they don't provide a proper service to the public... We have a Govt. that is making F 1 racing tracks and having glorious parties spending millions... why not buy more Govt, buses and run these private jokers out of business in 5 yrs...

    The bus-mafia at it again? Appropriate the buses if they cannot provide a decent service.
