Protest against hit and run law: Bus wheels stopped, passengers getting worried, demand to withdraw it

Sushil Khare, Ratlam. Protest against the new law of hit and run has started in Ratlam district of Madhya Pradesh. Drivers of private buses did not board the bus as a form of strike. Passengers have been facing problems since this morning. Drivers protested against the black law by parking their buses at Shyama Prasad Mukherjee bus stand. The drivers are demanding that the black law providing for heavy fine of up to Rs 50 lakh and 10 years of imprisonment should be withdrawn.

Transport Employees Union District President William Denion said that no driver intentionally causes an accident. Under the new law, if a driver meets with an accident even by mistake, the future of him and his family will become bleak. Vehicle drivers and conductors are committed to following every rule of the Constitution. But the new provisions of hit and run case will ruin the lives of the drivers.
