Life risk under bus stop shades

It is really unethical for auto drivers to park their three-wheelers at the bus stand. We are going to take stringent measures against them.

Besides, we plan to regulate the bus services, too. Presently, they stop just about anywhere to pick up passengers. Then, there is another problem with the bus shades. Some of them are in a deplorable state. And most were erected unscientifically. So, a number of passengers do not find it safe to wait at a bus stop.

I have plans to rectify all these irregularities. They are on my agenda and I shall take them up one at a time.
