Mangalore, October 3: In all the cities of our state the government buses transport passengers but under the Narm project, why government buses cannot be run in Mangalore? The Private buses conductor’s harassment is unbearable, weather it is possible to take actions against this? It was a query to the President of District Regional Transport Authority (RTA) and Deputy Commissioner AB Ibrahim by class 8 female student.
On the eve of Gandhi Jayanti celebrations, a special program was organized by the district Scouts and Guides at the residence of the DC A.B. Ibrahim; in which during the conversation with the DC a student named Sharanya asked this query.
Since there is no particular law that only the government buses have to be run; as per the convenience private buses are run in the city. Private buses have come up with the best services. However, a lot of complaints about the conductor of buses have been received. This has been brought to the attention of the bus owners; they are helpless due to the lack of drivers and conductors in private bus system, they are unable to maintain discipline. Amidst this under the Narm Project, very soon 30 government buses are going to run; which is under processes.
The DC A.B. Ibrahim addressed the student and said, before you start to go to class at 9 the next year (for the next academic year), the government city buses will move on roads. After garlanding the Gandhi’s portrait and prayer, the students astonished the DC by their various questions.
How to keep our city clean? How to control anger? Even during the day girls are unable to walk, so how does Gandhi’s dream come true? Cannot be plastic barred? In our state, why cigarette and alcohol are not banned?……Likewise serious queries of children were smartly answered by DC with description and he carried the conversation freely over an hour with the children.
Number of candidates being selected for the superior posts such as IAS is less from our state why? answering to this query he said, lot of candidates from the district have passed the IAS and are working in the country and abroad in different kind of posts; and gave information that by writing the IAS exams, we will get opportunity in 30 types of government jobs.
In the democratic country, if the guilty is not punished appropriately; the dictatorial rule is appropriate if the crime cannot be controlled, is it not? At this question of a student, the democracy provides a lot of rights to the person as well as speech. He clearly explained to the students that in dictatorial rule, they are deprived of all the rights.
N.G Mohan, the Chief Commissioner of District Scouts and Guides welcomed the gathering.
