Hyderabad: Telangana CPI-M on Saturday protested against increased bus fares in the RTC buses in the state. The party’s secretary Thammineni Veerabhadram led the demonstration rally in Hyderabad. The protestors raised slogans against the hike in bus charges and demanded the TSRTC to rollback the ticket price hike. 

The Corporation has increased the RTC bus ticket charges by Rs 5 saying due to increasing fuel prices it had become inevitable to hike the ticket prices to avoid further revenue losses. CPM leader Veerabhadram warned of intensifying the protests if the government didn’t withdraw the ticket price hike.
