The Punjab Government has started free bus service for women from today. On the issue, Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab in-charge Raghav Chadha said that Captain Sarkar was copying but not wisely. Captain government is implementing the services of the Kejriwal government in Punjab, but in Punjab only women can travel in government buses for free.
The Punjab government will still have to pay fare to women on AC, private and Volvo buses.
Raghav Chadha said that out of Punjab only 15 per cent buses are free of cost while 70 per cent buses would still cost money to travel. Raghav Chadha said that if the Punjab government was imitating the Kejriwal government then it should do so with a little discretion and provide free travel for women in all buses.
