Mulayams exit sees resumption of Delhi-UP bus services from today

Bus services between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh today resumed putting an end to a seven-month old stand-off between the Congress ruled Delhi and the previous Samajwadi Party ruled UP that was affecting nearly 3.5 lakh commuters everyday.

New Delhi, May 19 : Bus services between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh today resumed putting an end to a seven-month old stand-off between the Congress ruled Delhi and the previous Samajwadi Party ruled UP that was affecting nearly 3.5 lakh commuters everyday.

As Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati took over the reign of UP, after her party secured majority in the just concluded Assembly election, the 'friendly' BSP ended the stalemate today by allowing Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus to enter the State.

Delhi Transport Minister Haroon Yusuf today flagged of a DTC bus from Anand Vihar terminal to Noida in Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing people at the occasion, Yusuf said, "Both the governments do not want to let the common people suffer while commuting between the two States. People very well know that problem cropped up due to the stubborn attitude of the previous UP Government under Mulayam Singh, who had made it a political issue, without any concern for the problems faced by common man."

"It is a very happy occasion, that the problem of common man will be solved with the resumption of bus services between Delhi and UP," Yusuf added.

Conveying his thanks to Mayawati, Yusuf said, "Singh had made it an ego issue causing a lot of problem for the old, mothers, sisters and small kids who had faced great difficulty in crossing the road. Therefore the people of UP have voted him out of power, to teach him a lesson".

"Earlier, we used to get a bus for Meerut at the Kashmere gate, but due to the stand-off, we had faced a lot of problem in commuting to Meerut. We had to change buses twice, which was a wastage of time and money. The resumption of this service is blessing to us, said a Bageshwar Solanki, a daily commuter to Meerut.

The Delhi Government has also agreed to allow buses from UP to reach three Inter-States Bus Terminals at Anand Vihar, Sarai Kale Khan and Kashmere Gate as also to the New Delhi and Old Delhi Railway Stations. n the other hand, UP has given up its demand to run buses on other city routes.

In November, the dispute started after UP tried to ply its CNG buses to the interior of the national capital claiming that an agreement to this effect had been signed between the two states in 2004.

In response to the Delhi government impounding buses from UP, the latter also banned DTC buses from entering its territory.
