TN bus trike enters 4th day 7.1.2018 deccanherald.com
Thousands of commuters were left stranded across Tamil Nadu as the indefinite strike called by some transport unions over wage-related issues entered the fourth day on Sunday. Even as private buses were being operated, many passengers complained that they did not carry destination boards, unlike government buses. “I have been waiting here for two hours…I need to go to Vandalur but I do not know which bus to board.
