Rush in Bus

Submitted by Newseditor on Sat, 2015-12-05 18:29 Bengaluru: Following an announcement that train and bus services Bengaluru to Chennai had been restored on Friday evening, hundreds of tensed relatives of Chennai residents thronged the Shanthinagar Bus Terminus and City Railway Station. Same was the scenario on Saturday morning as well with the people from Bengaluru venturing out to reach out to their relatives in Chennai. Deployment of additional buses by KSRTC was also another reason for a large number of concerned Bengaluru residents waiting to board the buses to meet their troubled relatives in Chennai.One of them, Veena Vasudevan, married and settled in Murugeshpalya, was worried for her parents who are residents of Vichoor in Chennai. She had not been able to establish communication with them since the past four days. “Every attempt to reach my parents has failed as the telephones are not getting connected. I am worried as there is no news of them,” she lamented. Wamanthi who works in Wipro in Bengaluru since a year was worried about her parents’ condition in Mylapore in Chennai and as it is a weekend she wanted to rush to her native but she could not get the bus ticket. “We are many friends wanting to go to Chennai but are not getting the buses. Even the private bus tickets prices have gone up,” she said. According to Rajendran of Koduvalli in Chennai who had rushed to City Railway Station to check ticket availability for trains to Chennai from Bengaluru, “I am confused and worried for my State and I am stuck in Bengaluru while my entire family and relatives are in Tamilnadu. I want to hurry back home and see what I can do for stranded,” he said.
