Mini Bus Operators Union on Friday observed one-day strike against the dual policies of the government.
Led by Ch Razak Ahmed, President Mini Bus Operators Union, All Narwal Channi Himmat Jammu, the mini bus owners and drivers assembled at Exhibition Ground and raised slogans against the government. Ahmed said that Traffic Police and J&K Police are harassing mini bus operators in the name of fitness certificates of vehicles which are being denied by the Regional Transport authority on the pretext of installing GPS in vehicles. He alleged that contrary to Jammu’s operators the Valley based transporters are exempted from GPS installation showing the hypocrisy of Government and sheer discrimination with transporters of Jammu.
He threatened to intensify the agitation if government will not treat Jammu’s transporters at par with Kashmir.
