Making state transport a profitable venture
I travelled from hyderabad to akola recently ..The top of a private passenger bus was laden with goods not from the passengers but had commercials aspects attached to it..It was like a mini truck and the bus owners who has the licence to operate passenger services, do goods transport on the bus top to the maximum extent possible..
There is a lot of scope in the freight operations by the state owned transport service..This can be implemented in BJP ruled states..
---The prices of commodities would come down as there would be a competition to the private players.
---This would make the state transport a profitable venture and the money earned could be utilised for the welfare of people..
--This would also reduce the overloading of lorries and would increase the road life..
--Fatal accidents can be avoided..
It requires a quick positive decision in this regard... more
