The movement has been received with much criticism and controversy as the charges are beyond the capacity of the normal people. The officials have confirmed it and reasoned it saying it is due to 50% capacity.
The news came out on the same day when the Kuwait government said they will transport the stranded Indians in Kuwait freey at their cost.
It’s not capacity, it the incapacity of the Govt… BJP Govt. wants to make money no matter if people are dying or in the middle of Pandemic.. Karnataka Deserves this.. Hope people are clapping now.

People say that the government is looting the people during the pandemic.
This is a very difficult situation.
Labours don't have money to pay. KSRTC don't have money to pay salary. Govt has to pay labours as well as KSRTC through tax payers money. Tax collection reduced due lock down of economic activities and Govt has no money.
What's the solution?

Karnataka government has arranged buses for inter district movement of stranded people. KSRTC jacks up fares. Bengaluru-Bidar costs Rs.1984, Shimoga Rs.847, Mysore Rs.390 and Belgaum Rs.1478. 50% cap on capacity is the reason say officials. #Karnataka #CoronaUpdatesInIndia
