    what is the idea behind that Rupee offer for 4 days? Volvo bus experience promote maadodhakka?

    volvo buses needs no promotion. idea said is let common man also experience the volo bus journey which they are seeing but can not affort. but the reason that is indicated by vijay may be the hidden one BJP national Executive meet people can go around the city in one rupee (couple of rupees are given by some neta for this) still this can be enjoyed by all
    all regular commuters in volvo take ordinary buses during this offer it will be more comfortable and cosy for u

    I thought it was a very good PR exercise
    People who never tried it earlier will give it a try and for all u know will get habituated to it =P

    This is so weird… As Balu said, it’s a good PR exercise, but I don’t see any use for it…

    Good way forthe BJP Netas to score brownie points with their ‘paid’ supporters.

    ayyo. so sad to read that the so many of the buses were scratched and the cushions vandalized. How a silly thought by somebody in power can destroy these vehicles.

    @My3: Some things never change…. cheap attitudes are one of them… the general feeling is “What I cant have someone else cannot….”
