Bus was late for 3hrs and seems to be no prior information about delay.Passengers including family and other suffered badly.(mid night 12 pm).
No screens on windows. I see some liquor bottle stickers on the berth. I guess someone used that berth for drinking.
Full of dust and sand, there is a very bad smell.
Bus departure was late for more than an hour. Bus was filled with logistics more than the passengers. Horrible driver who takes stop every one hour
