Private bus operators had a flash blockade of the Madgao KTC bus stand on Wednesday morning, alleging that RTO officers are harassing them by issuing challans.

RTO on the other hand said they are issuing challans for violating the law and harassing the passengers. The blockade was lifted after transport officials agreed to act on their written grievances

Hundreds of passengers were stranded at the Madgao KTC bus stand as the private bus operators blocked the access roads.

When police rushed to the bus stand to clear the road, they refused to operate buses unless RTO officers come and meet them. Later on, they met the transport officials.

The RTO has assured them to forward their grievances to the higher authorities. But the RTO also argues that they are acting on the basis of harassment complaints they have been receiving from the passengers.

It includes overcrowding as well as misbehavior by conductors and drivers.
