Truckers to continue stir

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, AUG. 24. The lorry owners in the State have resolved to continue their strike in view of the failure of talks between the All India Motor Transport Congress and the Centre in New Delhi on Monday night.

The president of the Federation of Karnataka Lorry Owners and Agents Associations, G.R. Shanmugappa, who is camping in New Delhi, said that another round of negotiations was likely to be held on Wednesday.

Mr. Shanmugappa said that the fuel transporters all over the country had decided to take their vehicles off the road for a day as a symbolic support to the lorry owners.

He claimed that the vegetable movement in the State had suffered because of the strike. The vegetables which were to be shifted from Hassan and surrounding areas to Bangalore were not lifted, he said.

Meanwhile, the Transport Commissioner, Om Prakash, said in a release that the availability of essential goods was not affected. The situation had improved with more vehicles coming into the city with loads of vegetables and milk, he said.

The number of vehicles entering the city had gone up from 37 on Monday to 97 today. In all, 231 vehicles had come into the market and 29 vehicles went from the State to Tamil Nadu and Kerala, he said.
