Mumbai, May 12: Mumbai to Mangaluru bus journey that was banned for the last fifty days began after the unceasing efforts of north Mumbai MP Gopal C Shetty and people’s leader, sincere social worker Ermal Harish Shetty. Gopal Shetty gave the green signal for the journey.

Bunts Sangha's new project committee president, Mundappa S Payyade donated fruits, Ermal Harish Shetty distributed biscuits and food packets and wished a pleasant journey to all. The organizers said that the bus will proceed from Mira Road via Borivli, Andheri, Santacruz, Sion, Chembur, Vashi, Pune, Belagavi, Bhatkal, Kundapur and Udupi to reach Mangaluru.

Only one passenger is allowed for two seats to maintain social distance and only 20 passengers are accommodated on the bus. The Karnataka state government and the local district administration will decide about the mandatory quarantine of each passenger on arrival at the destination.

Ermal Harish Shetty said that additional buses will be put to service after obtaining permission from the respective deputy commissioners. Pregnant women, critically sick people and those who are undergoing surgeries will be given priority. The e-pass, medical test certificate and Aadhaar card are mandatory as per

"Our activists will help with other needs. We will provide food, fruits and drinking water for the time being. Travellers should maintain peace. They should follow the government directions and assist toward a healthy society," he said.

    We are in Mangaluru Kotekar..... We came here to see my brother-in-law, as he was serious. Unfortunately he expired and we stuck here for the last two months. Please arrange for any bus from Mangaluru to Dombivli. Thanks.
