KATHMANDU;- Just 18 September, Kathmandu. Most of the public transport in Kathmandu has stopped service. The service of short distance vehicles in Kathmandu Valley has been stopped due to the call of the Central Federation of Public Transport.
Vehicles affiliated to the Nepal National Federation of Transport Entrepreneurs are running erratically. Passengers have been forced to travel in coaches as public transport is running thinly on the road.
FNCCI General Secretary Keshav Nepal said that they had to go into agitation after the Bagmati government did not increase the fares of public transport running at the state and local routes. According to him, the protest was stopped on the side of the road on Monday.
Although the federal government has increased the fare of inter-state vehicles up to 28 percent at the national level on July 12, the fare of short-distance vehicles has not increased. According to the law, the concerned state and local levels have the right to adjust the fare of public transport running on short routes.
Nepal says that despite their written request for rent adjustment at all state and local levels, no hearing has been held.
“We started collecting self-proclaimed fares, but were arrested, we were taken into custody,” he said. “More than a hundred buses are now under police control, so we have stopped service.” The federation has warned that if the state government does not show interest in increasing the fare, there will be a third agitation in the crossroads.
In the case of vehicles plying from one local level to another and from one district to another within the state, the fare has to be adjusted by the state government and the local government concerned within the local level. Transport businessmen have been demanding that the federal government increase the fares of local and state-run vehicles at the same rate.
