The government’s move to hike the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) bus charges is vehemently opposed by various sections of the political spectrum and an appeal has been sent to the State to reconsider its decision. The State has decided to hike the tariff by 10 paise per km for rural or ‘Palle Velugu’ services and 20 paise for other routes. The Centre for Indian Trade Unions (CITU) views the decision as having ‘far reaching consequences’ in view of the recession-like situation gripping the economy and the surge in prices of essential commodities in the recent months. ‘Cascading effect on freight’“The poor and the middle classes are already suffering due to the price rise and a hike in bus fare will only add to their woes,” said CITU district secretary Kandharapu Murali. He faulted the government for resorting to a ‘quick fix’ solution, instead of looking for alternate options to bring down the … [Read more...] about Trade unions flay government’s decision to hike APSRTC bus fare

By Joshua Muyiwa Declare a dry day in this city and nobody will get out. No customers today!” said A, one of our regular auto-drivers (or are we one of their regulars?). “How come you are out?” he interrogated. “I’ve come to get dinner with my friends,” I said quite defensively for some reason. “Oh, the others are here, I didn’t see them enter,” he tells me. And then, he went on to give little details about my other friends and their whereabouts since he last saw me. He said, I saw this one here and they were doing this, I saw that one over there with that other one and so on. This fellow knows each of us in my close cabal of crazies, he knows our jobs, our incomes, our home addresses, our intimates, our flatmates, our other friends, our acquaintances, and their home addresses and so many other little things that we’ve revealed, and risked in the closeness of their rickshaws.

I wouldn't say it has increased the dissatisfaction of the Muslims, but I certainly believe that this is not the final say on the subject. There are going to be appeals in the Supreme Court and we will have to wait for the final verdict. Would you say that the verdict will truly be complete only if those responsible for the demolition are brought to justice? That is a separate issue. This was a civil case pertaining to … [Read more...] about ‘I don’t believe India has moved on’
