Five Fatal Accidents in 25 days by Pmpml Buses is alarming situation.
Pmpml is consistently giving intentionally misleading information thru media to justify its inefficiency & fallies.
The chart of facts & figures is given in the attached letter in marathi.
Its more alarming in light of approaching Rakshabandhan day when in anxiety to further its misleading mission the danger to safety of citizens/commuters is likely to increase substantially due to unfit unsafe buses, arrogance of Contractors,irresponsible administration and undeterred employees.
We have represented several times to RTA in this regard,RTA being Guardian of Traffic safety and efficient/effective public transport.
Awaiting positive prompt response and direction to PMPML & Local Bodies in this regard.
Thanks & Regards,
