New Delhi, Dec 3: The increase in bus fire incidents in Delhi has forced the government officials to schedule a meeting with representatives of Tata Motors.
"The main agenda at the meeting will be to find out the reasons behind the incident," said a Delhi government official.
Delhi has witnessed three bus fire incidents within a week, the latest one being on Wednesday, Dec 2, in which a low-floor bus caught fire.
Upsurge of such fire incidents in state-run buses has come as a dampener to Delhi government's plan to bring 3,500 low-floor CNG-fueled buses in place of privately-owned Blueline buses before the Common Wealth Games.
Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) runs 3,559 buses, all of which are fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG).
