Rising fuel prices Mini bus operators to stop services app based cabs stage protest
| Wednesday | 1st July, 2020
Kolkata: Mini-bus operators have decided to stop their services due to spiraling diesel prices and high maintenance cost from Wednesday.
The reasons are fuel prices hiked for the 22nd time on Monday in just over three weeks and COVID-19.
Today, the diesel price is Rs 75.64 per litre," said Pradip Narayan Bose, secretary of West Bengal Bus and Mini-Bus Owners' Association.
We are not forcing the mini-bus owners to stop services.
With the rising diesel cost, barely 10 percent of the cabs are operating currently.
