All India Motor Transport has gone on an indefinite nationwide strike since today due to rising petrol and diesel prices across the country. Transporters say that the government is continuously increasing the prices of petrol and diesel, which is causing the losses to transporters.
The government is not thinking about their employment even once, due to which it is becoming difficult to trade for them. Due to which, they have no other choice than the strike.
Due to this strike of transporter, the wheels of 92 lakh small and big trucks have stopped in the country. It is believed that due to the strike people will have to face heavy problems. However, Kulcharan Singh, President of Transport Association, had talked about his demands from Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Thursday, but that too didn’t result in any outcome.
After this, the Transport members also spoke to Union Minister Piyush Goyal late night. They were assured of creating a committee. The transporters refused to accept it. They say that many times committees have been created, but did not find any solution which will cause the transporter strike now. However, the impact of the strike has not yet been seen. Transporters believes that its impact will be seen from Saturday.
