Older women in Uttar Pradesh are soon going to get a big gift from the Yogi government. Soon more than 60 women will be able to travel for free in UP Roadways buses in UP. According to the affidavit, senior women will get the opportunity to travel free of cost in the roadways bus.
Let us tell you, BJP had promised free bus travel on roadways for senior citizen women in its Sankalp Patra and now the government has prepared a proposal under its Sankalp Patra. The link states that women above 60 years of age will soon be able to travel for free in roadways buses.
According to the government, about Rs 264 crore will be spent annually on this project. At present, the Transport Corporation has prepared its proposal and sent it to the government. However, there are two states in the country where women are being offered free bus travel. This facility has been given to women in the capital Delhi and Rajasthan. Now the largest state of the country is also following the same path. It is being said that these buses will be operated in all the cities. The scheme will be launched on the basis of the data of elderly women currently being collected from all the depots in the state.
In such a situation, if the survey of those women would have been done by the UP State Road Transport Corporation (Roadways) earlier. The survey tried to know how many women use these buses and what facilities are provided to them. At present, no date has been announced by the state government, but it is being said that this scheme will be launched soon. However, more free promises have been made by the BJP in the Sankalp Patra. Giving free gas cylinders on Diwali-Holi is also considered a big promise.
