Bommai promises full protection to bus transport workers reporting for duty

Bengaluru, Apr 8: Even as the striking employees of State Road Transport Corporations as well as those of the Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) have refused to heed the fervent appeals from the State Government to call off their agitation to press for their demand of granting 6th Pay Commission pay scales on par with all government employees, Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai has assured that the police will provide full protection to those coming for duty.

Bommai, who also heads the Law and Parliamentary Affairs portfolio, speaking to reporters in Humnabad of Bidar district, appealed to the striking bus drivers and conductors to resume duty in the interests of the travelling public, employees and students.

The Minister has been busy in campaigning for the BJP candidate in Basavakalyan assembly constituency by-election.

The Home Minister made it clear that he has given instructions to the Director General of Police Praveen Sood and all other Superintendents of Police in the districts, to provide protection to the transport employees willing to report for duty.

“Many people are affected by the strike. We can see the problems of the public. All transport corporations are under loss. If we strengthen these corporations, then only we can protect the interest of transport department employees,’’ he said requesting the striking employees to end their strike.

Bommai said, “We have to protect corporations and the salary of employees should also be enhanced. We can do this by hard work. I request all employees of transport department to come for work. It is my humble appeal. Don't let people suffer.’’
