The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today announced that they will be protesting against the bus fare hike in the state of Tamil Nadu.

The students, including girls squatted on the road and blocked the busy vehicular traffic on the Pasumalai road.

The AIADMK government raised the bus fares for the first time in six years. The protesters include college students.

William said hike was unjustified, arbitrary and had been made without following procedures. The members of the public, comprising mainly daily wage earners, said the new fare implemented from yesterday took away a chunk of their meagre income.

However, the Union Minister justified the hike in bus fare due to t rise in fuel price.

Stalin suggested measures such as streamlining the administration of transport corporations, operating buses on profitable routes and using advertisement for revenue generation to make them economically viable. Instead of using such "practical" measures, hiking fares would not ensure stability of transport corporations, he added. "When people were already suffering due to the GST, demonetisation of currency notes and price hike in other basic commodities, the bus fare hike is totally against the welfare of the public", he commented. PMK and DMK have announced protest demonstrations on 25 and 27 January against the hike, while CPI (M) has said they would stage protest demonstration on 22 January.

Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) leader Thol Thirumavalanan condemned the hike and said that it was a mindless decision of a government that does not care about the man on the street.

Without considering the welfare of the people, the State has hiked the bus fares mechanically.

"Input costs have risen significantly".
