"पोलिसांनी दिलेल्या माहितीनुसार, लोहगावहून कोथरूडकडे जाणाऱ्या १०२ क्रमांकाच्या बसच्या चालकाने कर्वे रस्त्यावर बंद अवस्थेत उभ्या असलेल्या पीएमटी बसला ओलांडून जाण्याचा प्रयत्न केला. त्या वेळी सुरेश संजू शेट्टी (वय २७, रा. ७९/१, पीएमटी डेपो, कोथरूड) त्या बसच्या मागील दारात उभे होते. बंद पडलेल्या बसचा धक्का लागून शेट्टी गंभीर जखमी झाले."
Samrat Phadnis says
"Pune is changing and growing rapidly. But with this speed?...Four people had died in not more than 3 weeks due to absolute ignorance of PMT and still no one has shouted against ruthless PMT or PMC. Remember, four families are shattered...due to this practice.
So many dignitaries criticized Pune's roads… bumpy roads choked with vehicles, cars, carts and people…and polluted PMT Buses are running over it as well as running over the people…killing them."
This problem raised by Samrat is not limited to Pune only. It can happen in any city.
Is it reckless PMT's who always run behind the schedule? Is it the commuters who in spite of knowing dangers, do not take care of themselves? OR is it the bad roads on which works are going on for ages?
