The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation made its debut in the Amrit Mahotsavi year. On this occasion, today the inauguration ceremony of buses in electric system was held. Inauguration of the first electric ST bus in the state. This ST electric bus will work on the route from Pune to Ahmednagar. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray attended the online event. This time, he thanked the work done by the ST staff during the Corona period. He also commented on their demands.
“We have no idea how many years have passed since the service we see and use every day. I couldn’t believe it when I found out that it was the year of Amrit Mahotsavi. ST was started in 1948. It started from Pune and even today it is starting from Pune by fluke,” said Uddhav Thackeray.
“Before there were no vehicles, many times they traveled in carts pulled by oxen. Not everyone can afford to travel by car. In such a case, ST is doing a great job of providing affordable services to the common man. ST has an important role to play in shaping the future. It is also safeguarding the future of the state and the country. During the Corona period, the ST employees have done a great job. You will never be able to get rid of your debt. They worked despite the dangers that lay ahead. He also served in the city. ST contributes to every moment, day and area of Maharashtra,” said Uddhav Thackeray.
“The IPL just ended. At that time, during the announcement, big dreams were told. It was part of the announcement that many players said who helped them. But even today, there are many who say how ST has helped and what I am today thanks to ST,” said Uddhav Thackeray.
Uddhav Thackeray recalled the agitation of the ST workers and said that it was a painful moment. He said, “Last year’s period was painful for everyone. We see them not only as ST employees, but as family members. ST is often said to be lost. But what is the benefit of ST service if going to keep the ticket price on par with private buses? Then naturally we have to bear the loss. Your Minister of Transport often asks what to do with the salaries of ST employees. Therefore, we have paid the salaries of ST employees from the government and we have also guaranteed for the coming years”.
“The middle term was painful because everything can be done but money cannot be disguised. You will not tell your problems to us, but to whom. But what if you just do things you don’t want to do and don’t do them tomorrow? That is why we will do what is possible then and we will continue to do so. But you must also realize that we are the glory of our state,” Uddhav Thackeray advised.
Mumbai will be the first city to have the largest number of electric buses, said Uddhav Thackeray. He also suggested that attention should be paid to how the ST service would be pollution-free. We are bringing new concepts, otherwise the ST seen in the movie today would have stayed the same. Uddhav Thackeray said that the needs increase with the passage of time and our goal is also to move forward by changing.
