Bus Strike In Punjab: Government bus strike in Punjab causes severe passenger inconvenience amidst extreme heat

PTC News Desk: Amidst scorching temperatures in Punjab, residents now face exacerbated challenges as government bus services across the state have come to a standstill due to a strike. This development is poised to significantly inconvenience passengers.

The strike, organised by contract employees of Punjab Roadways, has been announced statewide. This situation has created immense hardships for commuters, particularly those reliant on public transport for daily commuting needs. The contract employees cite non-payment of salaries for the past two months as the primary reason behind their decision to strike.


"The lack of salary payments has forced us to take this step," expressed a spokesperson for the contract employees. The sudden halt in government bus services has left many commuters stranded and scrambling to find alternative means of transportation during the extreme heatwave gripping the region.

This strike has sparked concerns among the public, with many expressing frustration over the timing of the action amidst already challenging conditions brought about by the intense heat. As negotiations between the concerned parties continue, residents are left hoping for a swift resolution that would restore normalcy to public transportation services across Punjab.
