HRTC strike: transport buses remain off road


By: Mohan Lal Verma

Himachal Road Transport Corporation buses remain off road in the state today supporting national wide call of transport strike against new motor vehicle act by different transport unions.

The commuters especially employees and students who normally use HRTC buses had to face hardship today as they had to board crowded private buses or higher taxis to arrive offices and schools. Land transport plays an important role in the state, as it is only way for people to commute from one place to another.

Private transporters, taxies, good carrying vehicles and other services remained immune to the call of strike. Joint action committee of different HRTC trade unions led by its convener Mr. Shankar Singh is supporting the strike in the state.

“We are opposing new motor vehicle act brought by Surface Transport Minister Mr. Nitin Gadkari after forming new Narendra Modi government in the country” Mr. Shankar Singh confirmed.
