RAWALPINDI – Transporters have protested against increase in challan fee and demanded of the concerned authorities to extend vehicles’ timing of entrance and exit in the city.

President Goods Forwarding Association, Muhammad Yousaf said that the transporters would stage a sit-in and a token-huger strike outside the parliament, if their demands were not accepted.

Yousaf said that the association has given 10 days deadline to the government in this regard. He said that the transporters are deprived of basic facilities despite paying millions of rupees of taxes.

He demanded of the concerned authorities to increase police patrolling in the areas where vehicles’ looting incidents occurred frequently. The traffic problems would resolve, if the truck stand would be set up near carriage factory, he added.
