Pune, 16th May 2022: On Sunday, visitors in E-buses were stranded at the Sinhagad fort for three hours as private car owners protested the government’s decision to prevent their vehicles from entering the fort. On May 2, the administration began operating E-buses and prohibited private buses from operating on the fort.

“Many visitors at the Sinhagad fort were stranded from early afternoon until 4 PM on Sunday due to an agitation by private vehicle owners who have been banned from conveying people,” a PMPML spokesperson stated on condition of anonymity.


An organisation called Shiv Premi Sanghatana led the agitation. Buses were unable to travel up and down the ghat portion for around 3 hours due to the commotion.
