PRP protests against APSRTC bus fare hike

January 8, 2010
Visakhapatnam

A dharna staged by the Praja Rajyam in protest against the steep hike in bus fares at Maddilapalem bus station on Friday. Speaking at the gathering, Bheemunipatnam MLA M Srinivasa Rao demanded immediate roll back of the hike and save the common man who was already burdened by steep hike in the prices of essential commodities.

He warned that the the party would be forced to launch an agitation in a phased manner if the fare hike was not reversed. Praja Rajyam Party rural convener and Pendurty MLA P Ramesh Babu, city convener, PGVR Naidu and party leaders were among those who participated in the dharna.

On January 7, 2010, both the PRP and Lok Satta raised their voice demanding for the rollback of bus fares. The state government, on the other, is saying that the fare hike is inevitable because of the mounting financial crisis with the APSRTC.
