On the first day of the State-wide strike of the Roadways workers across Uttarakhand on Wednesday, several commuters had to face trouble in various parts of the State.
The protesting roadways unions said that they have approached the management of Uttarakhand Transport Corporation (UTC) several times in the past regarding their demands and complaints but the management took no action due to which they are forced to protest against them.
Ashok Chaudhary, the secretary of Uttaranchal Roadways Karamchari Union stated that about 70 percent Roadways buses did not operate on Wednesday across the State. He said that the union had a meeting with the managing director (MD) of Uttarakhand Transport Corporation (UTC) but it failed to bear any fruit. Now, the union will have another meeting with the corporation again on Thursday, informed Chaudhary. The union members said that they will continue their protest across the State unless the administration accepts all the demands.
