More than 300 city buses have gone on election duty in Nagaland. Passengers have to wait for a long time at the stand.
There are more than 1200 buses registered with the district transport office in Guwahati but not all of them are in a functioning condition.
A top official of the transport department said the problem will continue until the last week of February. Meghalaya and Nagaland will go for voting on February 27.
