With an average of almost 22 buses per day, around 3320 Aapli Buses broke down within a span of five months starting from January to May this year.

As per a report in TOI, “Apart from poor maintenance, the buses break down frequently due to the ageing fleet. Of the over 330 buses plying every day, at least 200 have already completed 10 years.”

Aapli Bus service, used by 1.5 lakh commuters daily, is operated by Traveltime City Bus, Hansa City Bus, and RK City Bus operators, which have been allotted by the NMC. While there were around 470 breakdowns in March, 906 buses broke down in May. As per the same report, NMC hasn’t yet taken any preventive action. Moreover, there’s no system to monitor the same.

One of the regular commuters, Alka Zade, who daily uses Aapli Bus services, told Nation Next, The condition of the buses have just degraded. They aren’t even clean. Moreover, they are very old. Its high time the buses are scrapped and new fleet is added.

When we spoke to Deepraj Pardikar, Deputy Mayor at NMC, he said, I agree they are in a bad condition. Lot many decisions were taken during the budget meeting of NMC recently. However, we are yet to decide in detail vis-à-vis the condition of the buses and what exactly needs to be done. But it’s not that there’s no system to monitor the problem of Aapli Buses.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
