Sambasvia Rao, the managing director of APSRTC
said that efforts were being made to restore at least 40 per cent of bus service by this evening or tomorrow.
Schools, colleges, both government as well as private remained closed and APSRTC
operated very few buses, as most of the staff was on protest.
The bus services to the hill shrine were always exempted from strikes by APSRTC
Police arrested several TRS leaders and activists at various places in the region when they staged a sit-in outside the APSRTC
depots this morning to stop buses from coming out.
Because of this Telangana problem, all the buses from APSRTC
(Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation) are cancelled.
