Thrissur: It seems two major private bus associations in the state are not on the same page over the protest method despite similar demands to the government.

Private Bus Operators’ Association on Tuesday announced that they would observe a strike to press for their demand to revise the students' ticket fares and fix an age limit to avail benefits of concession tickets. However, Private Bus Operators’ Federation on Wednesday decided not to go on bus strike. Instead, All Kerala State Private Bus Operators’ Federation state president KK Thomas will go on an indefinite fast from onwards.

Private Bus Operators’ Federation opined that the Private Bus Operators’ Association, did not hold any relevance as compared to it. Bus strike will be a double whammy for the staffers already hit by the severe financial crunch.

Earlier today, the associations held a meeting with Transport Minister Antony Raju, but it failed to yield results.
