Bhubaneswar, 03/01/2018 ( Odisha Samachar ): Bus fare hike of 1 paise and 2 paise per kilometer by the Govt. is New Years gift to the people of Odisha says Rabi Behera, President Samajwadi Party and demands its roll back. As there is no hike in Petrol & Diesel prices, this bus fare hike is complete irrational and unjustified. It reflects as if the Govt. has surrendered itself before the pressure of the Private Bus Owners Association. He demands a Students Special for College & University Students and a special bus service for the daily wage earners at concessional rate. Immediate step must be taken to roll back Bus fare hike demands Mr. Behera.
