Protest against hit and run law: The wheels of almost half of the trucks across the country have stopped in protest against the higher punishment and fine under the Hit and Run Act. The number of drivers joining the protest is gradually increasing. Drivers are leaving trucks on the road. The situation may worsen today in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Punjab and Uttarakhand. All India Motor Transport Congress (non-political) has called a meeting of transport unions across the country in this regard this afternoon, in which the future strategy will be decided.

There is strong opposition to the new hit and run law of the Central Government in all the states across the country. All the transport unions along with the drivers have come out on the streets in protest against this law. Even today there are reports of traffic jams and strikes of buses and trucks at many places. Private buses, trucks and even private buses belonging to government departments are taking part in this strike. Actually, under the new law of hit and run, the central government has implemented the provision of 10 years imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10 lakh.

All India Motor Transport Congress President Amrit Lal Madan said that the transport union has come in support of the drivers. In this matter, a meeting of all the unions across the country has been called this afternoon. In this meeting, further strategy will be decided and according to the decided strategy, further methods of protest will be adopted.

Amrit Lal Madan said that at present more than 95 lakh trucks are registered, out of which 70 lakh trucks run on the road at a time. Out of these, 30 to 40 percent trucks are standing on the road. According to this, if we make a rough estimate, then out of the 70 lakh trucks running simultaneously, the wheels of more than 25 lakh trucks have stopped. In this way, the supply of essential goods may soon be affected.
