Private bus operators have decided to call off their proposed strike, slated for July 31. The decision came after the State Government assured them that it would look into the issue of fuel price hike.
“We have decided to call off the strike as the State has sought some time to consider our demands,” Mr Sadhan Das, General-Secretary of Bengal Bus Syndicate, said.
The CITU, which too had called for a State-wide transport strike on July 31, said on Sunday that it had decided to withdraw the strike call. “Left Front Chairman , Mr Biman Bose, had requested us to withdraw the July 31 strike as all the Left parties have decided to carry on mass movements across the State from August 1 to 3,” Mr Shyamal Chakraborty, State President, CITU, said.
