Private bus operators in the city stopped buses plying to different parts of Goa from the state capital bus stand protesting against alleged assault on drivers and conductors of private buses by a group of Kadama bus drivers and conductors on Saturday. A scuffle between a group of Kadamba bus drivers and conductors broke out in the afternoon and it resulted into the main bus stand city coming to a standstill. A large number of passengers were stranded at the bus stand. A complaint was filed against Kadmaba bus operators at city police station. However, private bus operators resume operations later in the evening. Meanwhile, speaking to reporters, Kadamba Transport Corporation (KTC) Chairman Carlos Almeida said he would sort out all the problems between Kadamba and private buses. He said a coordination committee comprising Kadamba and private operators and government officials would be formed soon to see that there was no recurrence of such issues in the future. "There have been problems between the private and KTC staff which will be sorted out amicably. If it is proven that the KTC staff were at fault then strict action would be taken on the erring staff," he said. UNI AKM 2242
