The bus driver accused the authorities of not receiving his salary on time.
On Wednesday, bus drivers halted operations at a toll station in Ahirwa, accused of reinstatement in hiring and non-payment of wages.
Drivers created a riot at Chakeri’s e-bus toll station located in Ahirwan. The drivers are alleged to have taken one to two thousand rupees in the recruitment drive.
They are also assured of receiving a salary of 16,000-17,000 Rupees/month. Now, they are neither paid on time nor get their recruitment money back.
Since most of the drivers are from out-of-province, running their families is becoming difficult. With that, they were also removed from their jobs.
At the same time, the management is still not ready to say anything in this regard.
