Razia Sultana,Transport Minister, Punjab today said that she would soon call on Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister, Delhi to take up the matter of plying of Punjab Roadways buses to the Indira Gandhi International Airport, the permission for which was denied under the pressure of private bus operator lobby. Likewise the proposal to induct new buses to the existing fleet of PUNBUS is under consideration and as soon as the permission from Finance Department in this regard is obtained buses would be procured.It was disclosed by Transport Minister Mrs. Razia Sultanan while meeting the delegation of Joint Action Committee of Punjab Roadways employee union held at her office at Punjab Civil Secretariate, Chandigarh. Employee Union flagged the issue that the entry of Punjab Roadways buses had been allowed only upto ISBT, New Delhi whereas the plying of such buses upto Indira Gandhi International Airport had been restricted under the pressure of private bus operator’s vested interest lobby. It was claimed that this decision of the Dehli Government is adversely affecting the revenue of Punjab Roadways as hundreds of international passengers daily go to Indira Gandhi International Airport commuting through private buses. Mrs.  Razia Sultana said that she already in the past had written to the Delhi Chief Minister in this regard but to no avail. She promised the members of the delegation that now she would personally go the delhi to meet Mr. Arvind Kejriwal to press upon the demand of allowing the access of Punjab Roadways buses upto Indira Gandhi International Airport.Responding to the demand put up by the delegation for purchase of new buses, the Transport Minister said that proposal to purchase new buses is under consideration at high level. She said that as soon as the clearance from Finance Department is received, new buses would be procured for induction into existing fleet of Punjab Roadways. The Minister also approved the demand of the employee’s delegation that as soon as a PUNBUS bus is declared debt free it would be inducted into the fleet of Punjab Roadways. Likewise the Minister assured the union to make it date bound to fix the seniority and promotions. On the demand of the union to restore the old pension scheme, Mrs. Razia Sultana told that any decision in this regard is to be taken by the Punjab Government.Prominent amongst those who were present in the meeting included Mr. Bhupinder Singh, Director State Transport Department, Mr. Daljit Singh OSD to Transport Minister, Punjab.
