“Passengers were not stranded because we sent a message to inform them that there would be no train service.

 

“Also, most of our tickets are sold online and the portal was not opened for passengers to buy tickets which was an indication that we were not available for service.

“Some passengers called to complain about their inability to buy tickets and we used the opportunity to inform them that we would be embarking on strike, so passengers did not bother to come to the station.”

 

He added that workers of AKTS also boycotted work on Monday.

 

“Our staff too did not come to work because they are aware of the strike,” he said.
