    Have you noticed these characters have sprung up everywhere lately with different names ? The troll army have been pressed into action to salvage whatever is left of the image of the powers that be. They keep changing names and mutating even faster than the Corona virus. They keep commenting on every subject in their imperfect English. With rampant unemployment a very difficult job to earn the measly Rs 2 per tweet that they get from their masters.

    Without the private bus mafia Mangalore is safe and calm. It's so pleasant to travel on the Mangalore roads. No unnecessary honking.

    Seems like you are a privileged person having your own vehicle to travel around and not bothered about those who depend on cheaper means of transport like buses.

    Where is the road for big vehicles to ply? The plight of roadblocks is pathetic in Mangalore in the mornings right from the word go till 2 o clock every single street is chocked. Most roads have been dug up and in just one side you expect so many vehicles to manage easily? Now jst with cars and two wheelers we are suffering,imagine when buses start plying. This is nothing but utter failure of management by the city corporation or whoever the hell is responsible. Such a beautiful city has turned into chaos all cos of improper planning and mismanagement.

    Without city buses Mangalore is stand still. But limited buses and minimum time that's upto 2pm. I don't think that bus operators will get any profit. If they run the buses in loss means, administration must declare bus staffs are also Covid19 warriors. Secondly, 50% capacity means, over and above over load ??.
