WHY COMMON MEN ALWAYS???

Hiii guys.....
Delhi's public transport buses began charging their new steeply hiked fares, affecting millions of mostly poor and lower income group commuters....Both the state-run Delhi Transport Corp (DTC) and the privately run Blueline buses implemented the decision three days later....
The minimum ticket in buses will now cost Rs.5 (compared to the earlier Rs.3), the Rs.7 ticket has been upped to Rs.10 and the Rs.10 ticket to Rs.15.
On DTC's air-conditioned buses, commuters will pay Rs.10 as the minimum fare and Rs.25 for travel beyond 12 km.......
For daily commuters its a big hike because they have to spend a limited amount on the fare and if it increases like this then its a direct hit on their pocket, and in this inflation this is a bang on common men's head and the new fare structure would eat into their limited earnings....
But if the government is increasing the fare rates, they should also ensure that the bus services also improve.A Delhi-based advocate has already moved the Supreme Court challenging the government decision to hike the bus fares, terming it "unjustified....As per the studies the state-run transport service firm has 27,818 employees, of which 2,000 conductors, 1,147 maintenance workers and 141 administrative staff remain idle at their places of posting.....
This is what government has gifed the common men.It is a pled to government if they force us to pay extra then atleast we expect to get good comfortable service....But till then guys, stay calm and wait for our Government to work for development....

Love and Regards
