Lightning strike by Mangaluru-Talapady buses over toll dispute

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, June 8,2017 :   Local buses plying between Mangaluru and Talapady  staged a flash protest for nearly an hour  on June 7, Wednesday  following a  dispute over collection of toll charges. The traffic was restored to normalcy after local police intervened.


The verbal clash arose after Shiva who had assumed office as  manager of the tollgate on Wednesday  directed the staff to collect toll from local buses as against the earlier agreement of exempting the  local buses from payment of toll. The exemption of toll charges was also extended  some time back  after consultations with NHAI and Navayuga Company.

On Wednesday when the staff demanded toll from the buses there was a verbal altercation which however was soon settled.
