Driver Pritam Singh, associated with the drivers association in Balodabazar, called the amendment in the hit and run law an excess of the government. He said that the government should make laws but keep the interest of the drivers in mind. In the Hit and Run Act, the entire fault is being attributed to the driver, which is not appropriate. Many times the other person is at fault which will be revealed after investigation, first investigate and then take action. Apart from withdrawing the amendment in the Hit and Run law, the drivers have also made many demands from the government.

Drivers demand from government

  • Drivers say that they are getting less wages than an unskilled labourer, the government should determine the driver's salary.
  • Arrangements should be made for insurance of drivers.
  • In case of death in an accident, ex-gratia should be given by the government.
  • There should be provision for government rest rooms for drivers on the highway.
  • A rule should be made that vehicle owners should not take duty for more than eight hours.
  • In case of diesel theft on the way, the owners of the drivers deduct their salaries; arrangements should be made to stop this.

Drivers say that we are poor people and if this law is passed, it will directly affect our families. The government should fulfill our demands and make proper arrangements keeping in mind the safety of our family. However, now it remains to be seen what effect the drivers' strike has on the government's decision. At present, the effect of the two-day strike has started becoming visible on the public mind, if the situation continues like this in future then the public will have to face the shortage of petrol and diesel as well as heavy inflation.
