A majority of the commercial vehicles including private buses, taxis, autorickshaws will stay off the road in Tamil Nadu on Tuesday as part of the nationwide one-day strike organised by the All India Motor Transport Organisation.
The main demand is for the withdrawal of the proposed Motor Vehicle (MV) Amendment Bill and against the hike in insurance premium.
Over 80,000 autorickshaws will stay off the roads in the city. Most transport workers’ unions, except those affiliated to the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) party, have announced their members will stay off from work in order to extend solidarity for the protest against the Central government.
Twelve unions of auto drivers belonging to the Labour Progressive Federation, Desiya Murpokku Thozhilalar Sangam, Pattali Thozhir Sangam, among many others will take part in the token protest. Read More
