New Delhi: Information commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu has revealed that more than 600 DTC drivers are suffering from colour blindness.

Acharyulu wrote a letter to the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal regarding the issue and has requested him to look into the matter for the safety of the commuters.

Acharyulu  wrote: ”It is alleged that at least 600 have colour blindness and many others suffer from other problems. I apprehend (and every one will agree) that if this is even partly true, the right to life of commuters in Delhi city will be under serious and constant threat until it is ensured that every driver is fit enough to drive the buses”.
