Bihar locals in city start bus service
LAKHS of poorvanchalis residing in Kirari assembly constituency in Delhi have found a unique way to help themselves commute to Bihar. The residents of the locality have started a bus service Kirari to remote parts of Bihar, ending at the Nepal border. The bus service was flagged off by BJP leader Pratyush Kanth on Thursday.
The residents said they have been chasing Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and senior leaders of his party for three years demanding the bus service but in vain.
“After getting no response from the Delhi government, people have finally helped themselves by starting the bus service from Kirari to Bihar,” Kanth said.
The people had been demanding the bus service given excessive rush in trains bound to Bihar. The situation worsens during summer vacations and festival season when they even fail to find a waitlisted ticket in these trains.
The 55-seater bus will take nearly 22 hours to complete the journey. There will be two drivers in the bus throughout the travel. The bus will initially operate its services to Bihar twice a week and it is soon to become a daily service.
