KARACHI: Karachi Transport Ittehad (KTI) President Irshad Bukhari announced on Monday that public transporters will go on strike from Tuesday to protest against the recent price hike in CNG prices and not being compensated for the vehicles which were burnt.
The strike will continue for an “indefinite period.” Bukhari also appealed to Rickshaw Taxi Association, Sindh Intercity Buses Owners Association, Karachi Goods and Carrier Association, Sindh Truck and Trailer Association and other transport unions to support KTI’s strike call. He demanded that the government bring down fuel prices instead of making any token decreases.
