VIJAYAWADA: Krishna District Lorry Owners’ Association (KDLOA) president K Venkata Ramesh has demanded the withdrawal of a circular issued by the Telangana government to collect road tax from AP transport vehicles entering that state.

Speaking at a press conference at KDLOA here Wednesday, Venkata Ramesh said that the Telangana government’s move would not only put a severe burden on transport vehicle owners but also on the common people, as the prices of essential commodities would shoot up. He urged the Telangana government to stick to GO MS No 43 issued earlier by Governor ESL Narasimhan, which says both the state governments should allow the same tax system to continue till March 31, 2015 in case of transport vehicles.

Venkata Ramesh further said that workforce of transport vehicles from both the states would  suffer if road tax is collected for vehicles of Telangana entering AP. He said that lorry owners from Telangana were getting ready to meet Telangana CM KCR to request him to reconsider the decision.
