There seems to be some respite in sight for capital commuters.
Transport minister Champai Soren has asked Ranchi deputy commissioner Vinay Kumar Choubey to hold talks with protesting diesel auto-rickshaw drivers, who are on strike for the last three days, on Monday.
The autos are off roads in the capital to protest against the district administrationís decision to allow only 2,335 diesel three-wheelers out of 9,000 to ply within city limits.
The 500-odd petrol auto-rickshaws and only 65-odd city buses have proved to be too less to share the burden of daily passengers.
Chief managing director of Jharkhand Tourism Development Corporation Sunil Kumar, however, said extra buses would be brought from Jamshedpur to streamline public transport.
