Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, on Tuesday, threatened to acquire 6,000 private buses in Kolkata through the imposition of National Disaster Management Act if the owners continue to refuse to operate them even after July 1.
I am hopeful that they will be plying the buses from July 1.
Willing drivers and helpers of these private buses will be allowed to operate the same against payment.
If they do not take up the job, then the state government will deploy drivers and helpers to run the buses.
He stated it to be crucial with only 2,500 private buses out of 6,000 plying in the city as of now.
