Farmers’ protest: apex transport body calls for pan-India strike

Dec 02, 2020 19:55 IST

An apex body of transporters on Wednesday threatened to halt the movement of essential goods across North India and subsequently the entire country if the demands of the farmers protesting against three farm laws passed in September to liberalise the sector are not met. The All-India Motor Transport Congress, an umbrella body of goods’ vehicles operators representing about 10 million truckers, called for a strike from December 8 in support of the farmers’ protest. AIMTC president Kultaran Singh Atwal said they have decided that if the government still does not agree to the demands of the protesting farmers, then we will call for a Chakka Jam all across India and stop all our vehicles.
