Delhi PWD minister Satyendar Jain Friday said the Delhi government will seek public opinion on the implementation of the app-based premium bus service that has been “put on hold” after Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung red-flagged the proposal earlier this week.

“The government has decided to seek public opinion on the app-based scheme, as asked by the LG, while refusing to give a go-ahead to it. For this, we will issue the email-id on Monday or Tuesday,” said Jain.
