TWF Calls for Strike Over Govt’s 50% Passenger Order

SRINAGAR:  The Transporters Welfare Forum (TWF) Tuesday called for a strike over fresh government order regarding 50% passenger movement in vehicles and demanded 50% hike in passenger fare.

TS Wazir, President of Jammu and Kashmir Transporters Welfare Association told that the order regarding 50% passenger movement in public transport has been taken without taking the transporters into the consideration.

“With 50% passengers on board, we won’t be able to even earn the money for fueling purposes,” Wazir said, adding that the government should either hike passenger fare by 50% or the transporters will go for a strike from tomorrow (Wednesday). (KNO)
