According to General Secretary, Kashmir Transporters Welfare Association,Sheikh Muhammad Yusuf Jammu and Kashmir transporters were asked to intensify the 72-hour strike and “go on indefinite strike if government fails to meet their demands, but now only after meeting with CM, further course of action will be charted”.
“Kashmir Transporters were hit badly by unrest and we are yet to come to terms and now government has pressed in a hike in fitness fees and other fees for renewal of documents. The hike in penalties and levy of additional fee of commercial vehicles for renewal of documents is also unjustified,” Yusuf said.
Meanwhile, Chairman, All J&K Transport Welfare Association, Tarlochan Singh Wazir while holding a press conference in Jammu said transporters have approached state government with their demands on several occasions but to no avail.
This meeting can lead to the breakthrough seeked by transporters of Jammu and Kashmir.
