A 24-hour transport strike has been called by the Private Transport Workers Union (CITU) to protest against the attack on transport workers in the name of Road Safety Bill. Due to the strike, all private transport vehicles in Coochbihar have been closed since morning.
To make the strike successful, a rally was also organized today on behalf of CITU. Here, due to lack of private buses running from the morning, the common people are facing a lot of problems. In order to avoid any unpleasant incident from happening by the center going on strike, the police are stationed at all bus stand and main intersections.
CITU leader Jyoti Dutta said that the central government had attacked transport workers in the name of Road Safety Bill. The strike has been called against this today. All private buses, auto-maxi etc are closed. Everyone has supported the shutdown.
