Wake up PMPML Part 2
Today I read an article in the Times of India that PMPML is going to add 600 new buses by the end of October 2009....sounds impressive....PMPML authorities say 200 buses will be added by August 2009...and the statistics go on.....The effort is noteworthy and is to be appauled....but it is a very small step in coping with the demands of the public.
Also one thing PMPML forgets is that by the year 2020, it is predicted that 60% of the world's population will be living in cities! and by looking at the rate at which cities in India are getting congested with people .....even Delhi , with METRO and BRTS in place , is finding it difficult to cope with the exponential growth in population.....and with buses in Pune jampacked, I doubt whether PMC and PCMC are really doing anything about bringing METRO and other transport modes quickly.....
Oh ! when will PMC , PCMC wake up?
