The transport workers’ unions have called for series of chakka bandh in Assam in support of their various demands including implementation of the welfare scheme for the private transport workers proposed by the Assam government.

The series of agitational porogramme includes 24-hour chakka bandh on January 27, 2021, 48-hour chakka bandh on February 12-13 during the Assam Assembly session, Northeast Now reported.

The transport unions said if their demands are not fulfilled by the Assam government, they will observe chakka bandh for 72 hours again from February 25-27, 2021.

The transport workers unions, which have called for the chakka bandh are All India Road Transport Workers’ Federation, Sadou Asom Motor Shramik Jutiya Parishad, Co-ordination Committee of Cab Operators, Assam Petroleum Masdoor Union and North East Heavy Goods Driver and Owners Welfare Association. The other unions which have called for the chakka bandh include Indian National Road Transport Workers Federation, All Assam Joint Motor Shramik Union, All Assam Drivers’ Union, All Assam Cab Operators Union and Travellers’ Association.

The transport workers’ unions have also demanded the withdrawal of the anti-farmer agriculture laws.

The unions in a joint statement said the government till date has not made any scheme for the welfare of the transport workers.

They said during the lockdown, the vehicular traffic was off the roads in Assam for 7 months.

“But the government did not provide any aid to the motor transport drivers and workers. The government is also not ready to waive off the tax of the transport vehicles which it had stopped from moving,” the statement said.
