Transporters strike against shifting of GBS Batamaloo to Parimpora continues
The Valley transporters Wednesday continued to protest against the government’s decision of shifting the General Bus Stand (GBS) Batamaloo to Parimpora.
The transporters are protesting from September 05 following the shifting of GBS Batamaloo to Parimpora.
Protest called by the transporters was extended by two days on Tuesday to press the government for their demands.
The transporters also accused the government of having a ‘deaf and dumb’ approach towards them and demanded immediate fulfilment of their demands.
The protesting transports earlier met with the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who promised them of deliberating on the issue.
“The shifting of GBS Batamaloo to Parimpora has resulted in the hardships to the general public including the transporters here,” they said, adding that the government with their callous approach are forcing them to take streets.
They demanded that keeping in view of the sufferings of the general public and the transporters, the government should review its order at earliest so that the people could feel a sigh of relief.
The protesting transporters later urged the government to look into the matter and fulfil their demands as soon as possible.
