The transporter Association said, “We had observed one day strike on 6th Jan 2021 and J and K regime led by governor that time had assured us that all our demands will be fulfilled by one week time, but till date nothing has been done. We have submitted cost of operation in the office of Transport Commissioner for Revision in passenger fare because the rate of petroleum product is increasing day-by-day.”

“We are not interested in going for an indefinite strike but the regime is enforcing us to do so. Due to the indefinite strike inconvenience to the general public/student community is the responsibility of the authorities,” he added.
