Nagpur, it can be said, Nagpur is being demanded to be developed as a smart city. One project after another is being implemented, planned, but the public transport system is becoming weak for the movement of people. Morebhavan bus stand craves for basic facilities only. From here the buses going to the surrounding towns and villages of the district are plying through ST. Apart from this, city buses to the surrounding areas are also plying from here. City buses ply from here to Kalmeshwar, Kanhan, Kamathi, Pardi, Butibori, Dava etc. and thousands of passengers come here from morning till night. The condition is that they have no seating arrangement. People are forced to sit on the ground in front of the platform and wait for the bus.
Children, old people, women are in trouble
Old people, children and women who come here to catch the bus are facing more problems. There is not even a bench to sit on. They either have to stand and watch the way or sit wherever they can get a seat until the bus arrives. Most of the women and children are sitting on the ground. A few bus stands sit on the walls of drains that run through the square. This drain is open and children also sit on its walls. Sometimes it can fall into an open drain if cheated. Even though the chaotic situation is spreading, the officials of the department are not happy to see it.
Locking the toilet
The situation is such that there is no provision of even small latrines and toilets for the citizens. What is there is closed. Men are forced to go to drains or backyards, but women face problems. ST Mahamandal has given 4 platforms to the municipality to run city buses, which is less. If the buses don’t get space on the platform and park anywhere, the citizens rush to grab the seats. Senior citizens are suffering. Smart city should also have smart facilities at this bus stand for the passengers of city bus and ST, but the responsible leaders do not care.
