Started 2.00 hrs late from Schedule time. On the way to Rameshwaram ,the bus was asked to wait for another one hour to accommodate passengers of another bus which was broke down 75 k.M away from sivaganga. Instead of reaching at 8.00am ,droped us at Rameshwaram at 11.00 am (15-07-2016). All the passengers schedule affected, who were coming from long distance. It is poor planning of KPN administration.
