Bangalore: The Monday Private Transporters’ Bandh is likely to have an impact on commuters.

<p>As the Federation of the Karnataka State Private Transport Associations has called for a “bandh,” thousands of private vehicles, including autos, taxis, maxi cabs, goods vehicles, and corporate buses, could stay off the roads on Monday, making it difficult for schoolchildren and office workers, among others, to commute.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-172251″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-bangalore-the-monday-private-transporters-bandh-is-likely-to-have-an-impact-on-com.png” alt=”theindiaprint.com bangalore the monday private transporters bandh is likely to have an impact on com” width=”1441″ height=”804″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-bangalore-the-monday-private-transporters-bandh-is-likely-to-have-an-impact-on-com.png 620w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-bangalore-the-monday-private-transporters-bandh-is-likely-to-have-an-impact-on-com-150×84.png 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1441px) 100vw, 1441px” title=”Bangalore: The Monday Private Transporters' Bandh is likely to have an impact on commuters. 6″></p>
<p>The federation consists of 32 private transportation groups in all, and it is improbable that the majority of these services will be offered between now and Monday at midnight. Some schools in the city have announced a vacation on Monday to avoid upsetting kids since private maxi taxis are one of many schoolchildren’s primary means of transportation, according to government sources.</p>
<p>Those traveling to the airport would also need to find other modes of transportation. The federation has demanded a bandh in order to, among other things, demand that the government outlaw bike taxis and expand the Shakti program, which provides free bus trips to women on state-run transportation buses, to private buses as well.</p>
<p>The private carriers assert that the Shakti plan has harmed them and that, despite numerous conversations, the state government has not met their needs. According to S Nataraj Sharma, president of the federation, between 7 and 10 lakh vehicles, including cars, taxis, airport taxis, maxi cabs, freight vehicles, school vehicles, as well as stage carriages, contract carriages, and corporate buses, would be taken off the road tomorrow.</p>
<p>The bandh would include a protest march from Sangolli Rayanna Circle to Freedom Park in the city, according to federation office holders. In order to lessen the difficulty that the bandh is causing to the general people, the Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) would operate extra bus journeys and services both inside the city and to Kempegowda International Airport on Monday.</p>
<p>Ramalinga Reddy, the minister of transportation, recently said that the government was ready to discussions with the federation and that it was making measures to minimize any disturbance to the general population.</p>
