2-day truckers' strike from today

Lorry owners in Karnataka and neighbouring states have decided to join the two-day strike from Monday called by All India Motor Transport Congress to protest against "unscientific" Goods and Services Tax (GST) and hike in diesel prices.

In a release, South Zone Motor Transporters' Welfare Association General Secretary G R Shanmugappa said the GST has led to double taxation with owners and transporters paying tax for the same vehicle. The association has also demanded a cut in diesel prices and removal of 347 toll plazas to mitigate the problems of the transporters.
