A lady conductor of the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) was suspended for allegedly shooting videos while sitting in the driver’s seat of a bus and uploading them on social media, an official said on Monday.
Sagar Mangal Gowardhan, who worked at Kalamb depot of Osmanabad district, was suspended from duty on Saturday, he said.
In the suspension letter, the Depot Manager informed Gowardhan that she is being suspended for making a reel in uniform while on duty and defaming the State road transport corporation. Meanwhile, BJP Maharashtra vice president Chitra Kishor Wagh opposed the suspension of the woman conductor.
“A woman conductor working in state transport has reportedly been suspended by state transport officials after she uploaded a video of herself on social media. A female conductor with more than one lakh followers could have been used,” said the tweet of the BJP leader roughly translated from Marathi.
