[Resolved]  KSRTC — BED BUGS in Rajahamsa

Last weekend I was on a trip to Hampi and had booked tickets to Hospet from Bangalore for the Rajahamsa bus departing at 11:30pm on 25th december 2008.
The bus started on time and the journey was comfortable for around 30 minutes. Then some o[censored]s started feeling itchy, but we thought it would be due to mosquitoes and we did not bother. But when it increased, we inspected our seats and to our surprise found BED BUGS crawling on the seats. When we informed this to the conductor, he was as if he would not care and just took us to the driver. The driver just casually put the blame on the cleaning authorities and said that even though pesticides were used, the bed bugs could not be controlled.
When we discussed this with other passengers, we came to know that this was a common story on these routes and everyone were somewhat accustomed to BED BUGS.
Hampi being a World heritage center attracts a lot of tourists every year and we feel it is the responsibility of the KSRTC authorities to maintain hygienic conditions in the buses they provide (same to be done for all the buses).
Hope they are aware now...

The KSRTC Rajahamasa buses are heavily infested with Bedbugs, we pay for a comfortable journey and end up fighting with the bed bugs all through the journey.

Its high time the Authorities decide on doing something to remove these pests from the buses.
ya i absolutely agree with the bed bug issue. i had a travel from bangalore to ooty on 5th dec in BUS no KA 40 F 395 starting from mysore road satellite from 10;30 pm. bus started promptly and to my horror i found hundreds of bed bugs crawling and biting us. it was a horrible experience and i had fever next day. And when i got my bag to house i noticed some ten twenty fully blood filled full grown bed bugs collected over the corners of my bag. This is really a serious issue as they are capable of spreading diseases and also infest the passengers houses and luggages .when i complained this to the conductor there were was a vague smile and he said that if you want a comfortable journey go in your own car . The ksrtc agents aere toly numb headed and when i discussed the issue with my friends many people complained of the same problem. KSRTC rajahamsa looks beautiful but its a horrrible experience travelling in these blood sucking vechicles. its like rajahamsa tickets for travel and BED BUGS free...
Hope the concerned authorities would have taken care on this. This is a very serious issue; please look into the same. We can atleast bid goodbye to cockroaches & mosquitoes post our journey but we are surely bound to carry bed buds home. They are a very disgusting creatures which are bound to spread drastically.
