The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation buses are likely to stay off roads almost throughout the day.
The state transport services are not running their bus services across Maharashtra due to Maharashtra bandh.
The depots at Mumbai Central, Parel, Dadar, Kurla-Nehru Nagar, Thane and at Navi Mumbai are completely neglected with buses not running since morning.
A senior officer from the MSRTC headquarters said, “Our buses will stay off roads unless the police provide proper security cover and assure that buses are not damaged. In the past one month, several ST buses were targeted by the Maratha groups and damaged in stone pelting incidents. So this time we have decided not to operate our buses as we are soft targets during the bandh,”.
