Appearing for duty during tough times like COVID-19 needs to be appreciated, but in the case of drivers and conductors attached to North West Karnataka Road Transport Corporation (NWKRTC), they are harassed.
The drivers and conductors alleged that duty manager Basappa Pujar harassed a driver by asking him not to enter the depot premises and for past few days, he made the driver sit idle without giving any work.
Following the protest staged by drivers and conductors, a senior official arrived at Mulugund Naka division and took the duty manager to task.
A driver on the condition of anonymity said, the duty manager always looks down on drivers and conductors. He allegedly threatened to get them transferred as he is very apparently close to transport minister Laxman Savadi.
