About 65,000 bus, truck drivers to remain on strike Oppose, Government talked to transporters, not us; repeal the Hit and Run Law

Raipur About 65,000 bus and truck drivers in Chhattisgarh are on an indefinite strike from Wednesday on the call of the Chhattisgarh Drivers Mahasangh. The Chhattisgarh Highways Transport Union has also supported the protest. According to the state president of the driver association, Pritam Sen, the government talked to the transporters only, not with them in the Hit and Run Law matter. He mentioned that all drivers will gather at Telibandha, where keys of the vehicles will be handed over to the owners. The strike was decided upon due to the government’s alleged refusal to repeal the law. He stated that the government held discussions with All India Motor Transport Congress in Delhi. However, there have been no discussions with the drivers for whom the law was made, especially when drivers across the country were on strike. During that period, driver unions from 28 states also protested at Jantar Mantar in Delhi. At that time, the union decided that if the government does not repeal its law, all indefinite strikes will begin from January 10. The strike of drivers in Chhattisgarh will result in the halt of buses, autos, school buses, goods-carrying vehicles, petrol, diesel, and all heavy vehicles.
