Install dust bins inside buses in Assam

This petition had 4,614 supporters

The primary mode of intra state passenger transportation in Assam is by Bus. Most of the people prefer to travel by in spite of Railway connectivity to most of the regions. However, while travelling in a bus, many passengers, including me have faced the issue of cleanliness. After completion of a trip, all the buses are cleaned and they are cleaned well but once the journey starts, people have to either throw empty water bottles, packets of eatables,etc outside the window on road or inside the bus itself if the coach is a air conditioned one. It is a rare case where people keep these packets and bottles with themselves to throw away later. Specially in air conditioned bus such as the ASTC Volvo 8400 that plies between Guwahati and Tezpur, people just throw waste on the floor. They are undoubtedly cleaned after the journey is over but what about the whole journey, where everyone travels this way. Even in non-AC coaches, throwing waste on roads is not acceptable. Installing dust bins in such a scenario can undoubtedly help in curbing this to an extent if not completely and also contributing to Swachh Bharat.
