AJKPWA asks transporters to call off proposed June 4 strike

Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 25: Strongly censuring the call given by transporters to observe one day strike on June 4, All J&K Passengers' Welfare Association (AJKPWA) has termed it as anti-people act, which will create more hurdles for the passengers especially those who live in far-flung and rural areas.
In his press statement, the state president AJKPWA R C Sharma has said that transporters always use strike as their weapon, which is immoral and unethical on the part of transporters as they have got permit to serve the society even during the emergencies but they themselves are creating hurdles for the people.
He said that there are several other ways to convince the government but transporters several times indulged in chakka jam strike for their petty gains and made hostage of common people. He said that resorting strike means that the transporters are violating the basic principles of transportation as you have got permit not for your personal issue but for the public issue.
Sharma said that the strike call should be taken back and expressed serious concern over the constant hike in petrol and diesel prices. He said that it is the concern of every person, which should be taken by one and all but resorting strike is totally anti-people and anti-social.
Lambasting the state government for its criminal silence over the issues of transporters, he said that why government had not considered the genuine demands of the transporters as they are going to make hostage of people. He asked the government to immediate come out of the deep slumber and take the issue seriously. He also asked the government to make State Road Transport Corporation so that such threats from the private transporters should have no effect on the people.
