All Kashmir Transporters Call-off Steering Chodo Andolan All Kashmir Transporters’ Confederation has called off its ‘Steering Chodo Andolan’ after observing the initially proposed two-day strike for a day on Tuesday.
Talking to the news agency Chairman All Kashmir Transporters’ Confederation, Mohammad Shafi Mir said that the strike has been called off as we have been communicated by our fellow bodies in different states that the Ministry of Home Affairs has assured of prior consultation with the transporters’ association before the final adoption of newly-introduced laws’.
“The further course of action will be decided as decided by the associations countrywide”, Mir said. The strike call given by the All Kashmir Transporters’ Confederation, mostly holding its sway over transporter bodies in North Kashmir, saw a mixed response throughout the valley even as another Association ‘Kashmir Transport Welfare Association’, based in central Kashmir, decided not to collude with the strike call.
The transporters have been demanding the rolling back of penal provisions introduced by the Centre regarding hit-and-run cases. (GNS)
