Extending the discussion on Pilferage by BMTC Conductors/Official and taking SBs suggestion for coming up with the list of questions for possible direct answers from BMTC or filing RTI with BMTC.

In any case, as a civil city and residents of Bengaluru, it is our duty to hold the powers responsible for all that good and bad happens in public institutions and corporations.

BMTC needs to be held responsible and answers should be demanded for all the relevant issues and questions.

Let us collate all the questions here. Pls feel free to list the questions via comments under two categories.

  1. Pilferage via in-bus corruption
  2. State of technology use in BMTC

REQUEST - Pls do not start discussions on Private vs Public. You may do so by starting a separate post on it.

My friend was asked to get

165 users have liked.

My friend was asked to get out of the volvo because he had a 100 Rupee note and no change.

Is this the way these uneducated drivers and conductors treat citizens who actually pay their salary?

And on top of this they said if he does not get down, they will kick him out and showed physical aggression and used abusive language.

So I think the local people in Bangalore are ready to do anything to harm people who work in this city, locals or from other parts of India.

Very cheap mentality. These people should be sacked. comment guidelines
