After the direct accident, the Transport Department and the administration started checking buses in Madhya Pradesh. Some of the buses were confiscated after they found deficiencies in checking, some buses were fined and released, while taking action against the overloading instructors not to over-ride. But angry with the administration’s action, the bus operators say that after the direct bus accident, the administration has cracked down on the bus operators to hide their mistake. Whereas the bus operator is the main part of the revenue of the state and is the only business which does its business by paying advance tax to the government. Bus operators say that all bus operators have decided to go on strike on 26 and 27 February. Bus operators say that the government and the officers are not paying any attention to the losses in this business from accidents in the state. Memorandums have been given to the Chief Minister, Transport Minister and officials of the Transport Department thrice in the last 6 months. Bus operators demand that fare has not been increased since diesel was Rs 60 per liter
