Bhubaneswar: The All Odisha Private Bus Owners’ Association (AOPBWA) has called for an indefinite strike from March 14 protesting the State Government’s decision to ply city buses on long routes and increase in the tax collection as well as toll taxes.
Besides the prominent points, they have an 11-point-charter of demands. The association has already handed over a memorandum to the Transport Department of the government in this regard.
Notably, around 6000-odd private buses will stay off roads across the State from March 14 for an indefinite period.
