Truckers are likely to call off their week-long strike on Friday as the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has given an assurance that it will set up a committee to look into their grievances.
According to a senior road ministry official, transporters’ body All India Motor Transport Congress and the road ministry would soon issue a joint statement regarding the development. Transporter union representatives met the central government officials today.
Truck operators’ demands included the closure of toll plazas across the country, reduction in fuel prices and uniform national pricing with quarterly revision, among other things.
