GoTN BUSted in recent GO regarding bus procurement!

Continuing contempt of Madras High Court + Misdirection by quoting the Rajive Raturi PIL order. The Supreme Court will NOT be amused.

Then there are the the ludicrous 'parts of the bus' justification for #a11y claims G.O. MS No 31 dated 24 Feb 2021 of Tamil Nadu Government Tra

Really @chennaicorp ! This is the access to Nehru Park Chennai Metro station? At points the pavement itself is non existent with bus and Poonamallee High Rd traffic whizzing by. Senior citizen required support on both sides with parking 50 m away. @cmrlofficial @DisabilityIndia
1 foot footpath with trip with at one side and someone sitting blocking the other side of the tree. Not to mention the auto blocking the way too. #Pedestrian #Accessibility #NotACakeWalk
