LSP Activists to Stop Jabbar, Diwakar Buses
The Lok Satta Party has decided to obstruct the operations of Jabbar and Diwakar travels from Monday in protest against the government’s failure to fulfil the promise of providing adequate compensation to the next of kin of Palem bus accident victims. It may be recalled that 45 people were burnt to death in a ghastly accident involving Jabbar travels bus at Palem in Mahbubnagar district more than two months ago.
In response to an agitation launched by Lok Satta chief Jayaprakash Narayan and party state president Katari Srinivasa Rao, the chief minister promised the relatives of the victims that justice would be done to them by January 20.
Party Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation unit president Dosapati Ramu and state Yuva Satta president P Shivaji said they had refrained from direct action earlier considering that passengers would be put to trouble during the festival season.
Now that the deadline set by the chief minister has expired, they will resume their direct action, they said.
