The strike has been called by the All India Motor Transport Congress to press for their long-pending demands. The association demanded that the Centre reduce diesel prices through reduction in central and state taxes by bringing it under GST, make transparency and reduction in third party insurance premium and eliminate excess commission paid to agents through comprehensive policy.
