Truckers halt market supply

The supply of commodities, like fish and eggs from other states, was hit on Tuesday with the nationwide truckers’ strike entering its second day.

Three hundred eighty-five transport bodies affiliated to the All India Motor Transport Congress and the All India Confederation of Goods Vehicles Owners’ Association have called the strike to press for a 10-point charter of demands, including stable fuel prices and withdrawal of a proposed cess on diesel.

A transport department officer said the situation will be reviewed on Wednesday when the government’s course of action will be decided. In Bengal, transporters will join the strike after 3 pm on Wednesday.
