Saying that they have been running buses on city roads for last three decades, Khan stated the government’s proposal, if implemented, would affect their livelihood as other routes are not profitable. He said over three decades ago, magic owners used to run tempos, which were later discouraged. He said they somehow took loans and bought Tata magic to earn a livelihood.
“How are we going to feed our families if run our buses on other less profitable routes? We will not be able to pay the installments of our loans,” said Khan. He said if the BRTS bus service suffers losses due to them on the same route, state should compensate it.
