Help this innocent bus driver get his job back

I recently came across a video on Facebook where a TNSTC bus driver Mr Vijaya Kumar explains that the bus he’s been provided with has a broken shutter, and he’s been completely drenched in rain driving for 4 plus hours. He also explains that the all the buses he’s driven have poor brakes and are poorly maintained. I’ve personally seen these buses, and I’m sure these buses are not maintained properly, and don’t have adequate safety for the passengers as well. They are unfit to drive, and raise a huge risk for the travelling passengers too.
Mr Vijay Kumar has been working with TNSTC for more than 12 years, and he’s complained many times that the buses aren’t maintained properly, and it’s dangerous to operate such vehicles. The authorities haven’t even taken a look till date.
The sad news is that besides numerous complaints no action was taken, and Mr Vijaya Kumar has been suspended due to posting a video on Facebook, and complaining about the safety of the buses and standing up against TNSTC.
- Mr Vijay Kumar has only expressed the bad condition of the buses, which could impact the passengers safety, and there is nothing wrong in his statement to be suspended from his service.
Mr Vijaya Kumar needs justice, He needs to be reinstated immediately. The buses should be maintained properly, and adequate safety features should be added for passengers. Please do your part in helping him. I hope TNSTC investigates and takes the right decision on this.
