Dadompora residents for restoration of KMD bus service
Budgam, Feb 14: The residents of Dadaompora Budgam have urged the government to restore the KMD bus service to the area.
“Earlier, the buses used to ply from Batamaloo to Dadompora,” the residents said adding the service was however stopped for the reasons better known to the concerned authorities.
“Dadaompora had a regular KMD bus service which used ply between Batamaloo and Dadaompora for many decades, but from the last couple of years, this service was suddenly stopped,” said a local resident Ghulam Rasool.
The locals alleged that the Sumo drivers are over charging from the passengers and are not following the fare rate list issued by the Transport Commissioner.
“We do not have direct transport service from our area,” they said, adding the Sumo drivers were charging Rs 20 instead of Rs 15 from each passenger who intends to travel between Dadaompora and Chadoora.
Transport Commissioner Speaks
When contacted, Transport Commissioner, Me’raj Ahmad Kakroo said that he would look into the matter and assured that the bus service between Dadaompora, Branwar and Srinagar would be resumed soon. “I have directed the Regional Transport Officer to ensure that the bus service is resumed soon,” Me’raj Ahmad Kakroo added.
