Driving home the message of zero tolerance towards misbehaviour and lack of service, Himachal Pradesh transport minister has made it clear that he’s just 10 digits away.
During his second stint as transport minister, G.S. Bali has announced that his personal mobile number will be exhibited in all 1,200 buses, luxury and ordinary of Himachal Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (HRTC). “I have issued direction to the HRTC authorities to display my mobile number soon in all the buses,” Mr. Bali told on Sunday. He said the mobile number (98160-35297) would work 24×7 to know the grievances of the commuters. “Last time (2003-07) also when I was transport minister, I displayed my number in all the buses. At that time, the response from the public was good. But the subsequent transport ministers (in the BJP stint) had stopped this practice,” he said, adding “every call is a direct link to the public.
The HRTC is also planning to start all-women buses in the state to check crime against the fair sex. “Initially, we are planning to start special buses for women on some of the routes during evening hours. A decision in this regard has been taken after the nationwide outrage against gang-rape victim in Delhi”, he added. Initially, the buses for women will be plied in Shimla, Dharamshala and Kangra towns.
The minister, who also holds the charge of food and supplies department, has also decided to display his mobile number on mobile ration vans, LPG distribution centers and its agencies and public distribution system (PDS) centers. “To bring more transparency in the PDS, the number will be displayed in every ration depot, godown and gas agency,” he added. The state civil supplies corporation is providing three ‘dals’, two edible oils and salt to over 11 lakh above poverty line ration card holders at subsidised prices.
