Some Okhla residents are not happy with the way government-buses are plying on the roads. They complain that many of the buses don’t start on their given time. The situation of bus route number 400 that starts from Kalindi Kunj to Minto Road is bad. The bus that used to run at around 8.20 a.m. is not running on time anymore, claimed a commuter Zain Uddin. “For the past few days, this bus is not running on time and because of this we fail to reach our office on time,” he said.
Now this bus is running at 8.55 a.m. and most of the regular commuters miss their office deadline of 10 a.m.
Angry residents have also written a letter to local MP Sandeep Dikshit and MLA Asif Md Khan. In that letter that is in possession of the OKHLA TIMES, commuters have written: “You are requested to kindly change the timing of any of the above said busses and fix its departure from Kalindi Kunj at 8.30 a.m. so that the government employees of Shaheen Bagh, Abul Fazal Enclave, Okhla Head and Zakir Nagar could benefit and reach their offices at Parliament House, Shastri Bhawan, Defence, AIR etc. on time around 9.30 a.m.”
Some 25 passengers facing this problem have raised the issue. To reach office on time they bank on the bus route no. 400 at around 8.30 a.m.
“Kindly change the time of anyone bus or if possible give us another bus on route no. 400 from Kalindi Kunj to Minto road at 8.30 a.m,” added the letter.
