A section of bus owners to go on strike Friday
Kozhikode: A section of bus owners under the Bus Operators Federation will go on strike in Kerala on Friday (August 18) demanding fare hike and rollback of the increase in road tax.
The strike was called after the talks held between the representatives of the Confederation and the Transport Minister on August 14 failed.
Bus operators are demanding an increase in bus fare including that of students, withdrawal of the increase in road tax for stage garages and inclusion of petroleum products under the ambit of GST.
Meanwhile, if the demands are not met, the operators have decided to go on an indefinite strike from September 14.
