Bathinda, June 14
Members of the Punbus PRTC Contract Workers’ Union staged a protest after a conductor was allegedly harassed by a PRTC official. The members suspended work for hours, demanding action against the official.
Mandeep Singh, president of the union, said: “Ravinder Singh, a conductor from Bathinda depot, had gone to Patiala for training at the PRTC head office. While returning in a bus, a PRTC official during checking reprimanded him for carrying an ID proof exceeding validity and prepared a report to initiate action against him.”
“Ravinder works for the PRTC and does not deserve ill-treatment from a department official for carrying an ID proof exceeding its validity. We demand suspension of the official for harassment.” The protesters blocked the entrance and exit points of the bus stand, leading to traffic congestion on the main road, causing inconvenience to commuters.
