Leak lets in shower of grievances

Leak lets in shower of grievances
I was in a private bus on route 215A when it started pouring. All the passengers got drenched, as few windows had shutters. Moreover, the roof of the vehicle was partly damaged and water trickled in through the leaks. When some passengers protested, the conductor promptly retorted that nothing could be done with the meager earnings from bus fares. While hikig bus fares, the government should keep in mind that we are deprived of even basic amenities.
