Thousands of commuters stranded since metro staff goes on protest

BENGALURU: The staff members of the Namma Metro operations have gone on strike resulting in thousands of commuters in the city left stranded. The BMRCL management is in talks with the staff about the negotiations but the protestors are not ready to resume the work unless their colleagues are released from Police custody.

UA Vasanth Rao, chief PRO, BMRCL, took to Twitter to state the current status saying “Train service temporarily stopped – will tweet once the issues are resolved.”

Around three lakh commuters are dependent on this metro commuting and are now stranded due to the ongoing metro staff protest which was scheduled to start at 5 am in the morning today.

Meanwhile, the members of the Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) are extending their support to the staff protesting, sources reported.
