Pathetic Condition of a TNSTC (Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation) Bus [VIDEO]
Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation Limited is a public transport bus operator in Tamil Nadu, India. It operates Intercity bus services to cities within Tamil Nadu, and from Tamil Nadu to its neighbouring states.
Before some days, a shocking video was circulated in social medias which showing the pathetic condition of a TNSTC bus. We can see the passengers are travelling in this bus. Nobody asking about this unusual condition of the bus. Watch the video below…
A woman had a miraculous escape as she fell through the hole in the wooden floor of a moving Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation bus at Punalur in Kerala in 2015.
Even as the TNSTC bus, proceeding from Tenkasi to Kottarakkara in Kerala, was slowly coming out of the Punalur bus-stand , a portion of the wooden floor collapsed through which a 30-year-old woman standing near the rear entrance of the vehicle fell on the road.
Though she escaped with minor injuries, the incident has brought to light the pathetic condition of TNSTC buses.
When a mishap of similar nature occurred at East Tambaram in Chennai, in which a student travelling in a school bus was crushed to death, a huge outcry that enveloped the State compelled the official machinery to initiate legal proceedings against the Regional Transport Officer who had given fitness certificate to the vehicle and the correspondent of the school.
However, the TNSTC administration here is not much bothered about this mishap.
When asked about the allegation that the 50-mm wooden planks purchased for the floor of all TNSTC buses inducted in the fleet of this division two years ago were of poor quality, he denied it subtly, repeating that they would check the strength of the wooden floors within 24 hours.
