Indefinite Strike By Transport Body In Assam From Today

Guwahati: An indefinite strike has been called by major transport body in Assam since Monday morning, 6 am, demanding hike in fares among other demands, due to which passengers have been affected.

The strike has been called by All Assam Motor Transport Association (AAMTA), seeking relief measures from the state government to redeem huge losses suffered due to lockdown restrictions for Covid-19 pandemic.

The list of demands by AAMTA include a waiver in road tax for a year, doing away with quarterly tax on vehicles, an increase in bus fares and financial relief to transporters.

“The government has been giving relief to almost all sectors due to losses suffered because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But transporters have been denied such measures, forcing us to resort to a strike”, general secretary of AAMTA, Pradip Das, told on Sunday.

“At present, we are operating buses with 50% of passengers’ capacity, but with the same fares as earlier. It has become impossible to continue, as petrol prices have also gone up by leaps and bounds”, he added further.

However, the government requested the AAMTA to refrain from imposing strike as it would create inconvenience for passengers.

“We had requested them to postpone or call off the strike, as a meeting with the transport minister is scheduled on Tuesday to redress their demands”, transport department official said.

The Assam State Transport Corporation (ASTC) has decided to operate 650 buses across the state to ensure passengers do not suffer due to the strike on Monday.
