Spectators given free ride on city govt buses

Leaving no stone unturned in its effort to bring the maximum number of spectators to Guru Nanak Dev Stadium for the closing ceremony of Kabbadi World Cup on Saturday, the district administration ensured free bus rides on city buses for people attending the final. The decision also came in the wake of poor response some of the matches of the tournament got.

The board of directors meeting which was held last week took the decision not only to make it convenient for people to reach stadium but also to keep traffic jams at bay in the already choked and congested industrial city.

The free bus rides which began since 2.30 pm on Saturday saw crowds enthusiastically taking the rides without any fare. MC ran its 14 buses out of fleet of 20.

"The buses will continue to run till 10 at night so that people don't face any problem in coming back ," said Baljit Singh, manager of city bus service.
