It is already known that the government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to hike RTC fares. This will be coming to effect from today.
Incidentally, Telugu Desam Party leaders, Chandrababu Naidu, Nandamuri Balakrishna, and Nara Lokesh protested against the government for increasing the fares. They held a walkathon just ahead of the commencement of today’s assembly sessions.
“Prior to the election, Jagan said he would never hike RTC fare. But he broke his promise in just six months time. It used to cost Rs 10 to reach from Mangalagiri to assembly through bus, but the ticket price has been hiked to Rs 15 now.”, Naidu said.
For the past two days, TDP has been targeting the YCP government in the assembly by pointing out a few issues like ‘Onions price hike’, MSP for farmers, and uncertainty over Amaravati.
