KSRTC strike might hit normal life in Mysuru on Monday following the strike call given by state-level KSRTC Employees Unions. The strike would begin as per the announcement from Sunday midnight.
On Sunday morning, there were no buses from Mandya and Malavalli depots and the public faced a lot of inconvenience. Union leaders did not let out buses from the depots and asked the public to make their own arrangements. In Mysuru, bus service was, however, normal and it will be affected later as the KSRTC workers will strike work from Sunday midnight.
The union has laid 41 demands including salary hike, better medical benefits, pension and other retirement benefits, not to hold drivers responsible for accidents, etc.
Mysuru district administration and police department are getting prepared to face the circumstances and are planning to ply private vehicles and buses as alternatives. They have also taken precautions to avoid autos and taxis taking advantage of the strike and fleece passengers.
