Mahanadi to Kurseong school bus service inaugurated

Mahanadi to Kurseong school bus service inaugurated
A school bus service between Mahanadi and Kurseong was inaugurated today. The bus was bought from the personal fund of Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha (GJMM) and Gorkhaland Territorial Adminstration (GTA) chief Bimal Gurung.
At the inaugural program at the Mahanadi Bazaar here,  the area GTA member, Prabha Chettri, said Mr Gurung had promised such a service during his visit to the Mahanadi area some months ago.
She said the bus will start providing service from tomorrow to students who go to school from Mahanadi to Kurseong.
She, however, said the service is not for free, but reasonable fares will be charged, much lesser than those charged by private transportation services.
GTA executive member Anit Thapa said a committee has been formed to oversee the smooth functioning of the bus, while all the earnings from the service will be accounted by them and used in maintaining the bus and pay the bus staff. Mahanadi falls along the now almost disfunctional NH-55 under the Kurseong Sub Division, and is frequently hit by landslides.(sns)
