Garoth (Mandsaur district): The new bus stand of Garoth appears highly disorganised as the authorities concerned are not paying heed to the worsening situation. Transportation system is collapsing but the administration has turned a blind eye to it.
Worse, motorcycles are parked in front of shops at the bus stand while fruit and other vendors have encroached up on bus stand premises. To park, the buses are required to move to and fro for about four times. “If the authorities don’t pay attention to this problem soon, a big accident may happen. It is difficult to travel,” passengers said.
When contacted, Motor Malik Sangh president Dr Narayan Singh Chauhan said they had discussed the issue with chief municipal officer several times but have not received any solution. “It is highly disorganized,” Chauhan said and added that if no action is taken within four days, they will stop operating buses from the bus stand. Instead, they will operate the buses from outside the bus stand.
On being contacted, chief municipal officer Girish Sharma said a complaint has been received in this regard. “We will take steps to address the problem soon,” he added.
