APST employees urge DC to review order

ITANAGAR, Aug 29: The All Arunachal Pradesh State Transport Employees Welfare Association (AAPSTEWA) has strongly opposed the Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner’s order allowing private vehicles to park at APSTS, Itanagar Station complex citing that it does not have enough space to accommodate all private vehicles along with STS vehicles.
In a representation to the Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner on Tuesday, the AAPSTEWA appealed to him to review the said order and provide parking facilities to private commercial vehicles to a different area other than the APSTS station complex, Itanagar.
The association stated that all the state transport service buses operate from the APSTS and are parked at the station in different intervals in between their turn-up duties in and around the twin capital cities from early morning till evening; therefore, it will not be practical to park these vehicles at ISBT.
‘The APSTS, Itanagar station does not have enough space in the Station Complex to accommodate all private commercial vehicles along with STS vehicles needed at the station’, it claimed, adding that often some private commercial vehicles remain parked in one place for hours together creating difficulties in entry and exit of vehicles.
It has further threatened to resort to democratic action in case the state government does not revoke the order in the larger interest of the commuters soon.
