The reason for this is the demand to reduce the amount given per km by the ticket collection agency 'Chalo App' in these buses, but in the last 6 days, BCLL and the officials of the corporation could not find a solution to this problem. In such a situation, more than 40 thousand passengers traveling daily in these buses are facing problems.

Conflict between BCLL and Chalo Company has stopped the wheels of 149 buses in Bhopal. The reason for stopping the wheels of these 149 buses in Bhopal is the conflict between BCLL and Chalo Company.
