Sarore toll plaza row: Transporters observe chakka jam strike in Jammu

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Transport Welfare Association observed a chakka jam strike in Jammu, against the authorities for not doing away with the toll tax at Sarore on the Jammu-Pathankot highway in Samba district of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The call for strike was given by the transport association.

People are demanding the suspension of toll collection at Sarore Toll plaza due to poor condition of the highway from Jammu to Kathua Lakhanpur.

Earlier a small meeting was called at Bhagwati Nagar but a large number of transporters with their vehicles reached the venue and to ensure smooth conduct of protest we have taken out a protest rally on roads in Jammu and this is complete peaceful and under law,” Ajit Singh, president of the transport union said.

He said that the protest is on Sarore toll plaza row. “We were going to extend support during the recent strike by Yuva Rajput Sabha also but the decision was deferred keeping in view festivals, including Raksha Bandhan as well as Amarnath Yatra.” He added that the decision to hold chaka jam, today, was taken by Jammu and Kashmir Transport Welfare Association in consultation with all other allied unions.
