In a press conference, BEST Workers Union Secretary Sharad Rao voiced concern on the running of AC buses by BEST despite facing a loss of 34%. He further added that this service should stop immediately. BEST Workers Union Secretary Sharad Rao further pointed out that BEST has a total of 72 air conditioned buses out of which 50 are old and 22 are King Long AC buses. Clearing that he was not against the notion of AC buses, he stated that they should be stopped as BEST was facing huge losses due to it. He said that he is against those air conditioned buses that are causing a loss to the bus administration. He advised BEST that either they should recover the entire loss or they should increase the ticket and pass fares to curb the loss. With cameraperson Lahu Konde, Hansraj Kanaujia for NMTV news.
