Bus services on 3.30 lakh route kilometre were disrupted in view of the strike. The RTC authorities were able to take out seven buses out of the depot with ruling TDP-led Karmika Parishad members reporting for duty... Regional Manager V. Naga Sivudu said that as many as 771 buses were confined to the depots across the district following the agitation launched seeking a 43 per cent ''fitment'' benefit at par with State Government employees... Buses from Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore were allowed to reach the bus station here in the wee hours by union leaders on humanitarian grounds... Temporary arrangements: Meanwhile, unemployed youth with heavy vehicle driving license thronged the bus depot as also those with a pass in SSC examination for jobs as drivers and conductors respectively...
