Bathinda: PRTC employees and pensioners staged a protest on Wednesday over the non-payment of salaried and pensions for the last five months.

Agitating PRTC staffers held a dharna at the bus stand and also raised slogans against the AAP-led Punjab government. Protestors claimed that free bus transportation for women costs Rs 34 crore every month due to which PRTC is running into a financial crisis. Owing to the negligence of the Punjab government, they have not received their salaries and pensions for 5 months.
