BENGALURU: Owners of commercial vehicles, trucks, buses and maxi cabs have deferred their plan to go on an indefinite strike from December 1 following an assurance by Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy to look into their demands pertaining to enforcement of speed governor regulations.
“We will wait for two days. We will see what the government does and then decide on the strike,” Karnataka State Lorry Owners’ and Agents’ Association President G R Shanmugappa said after a meeting with Reddy on Monday.
Association members asked the minister to find ways to make available speed governors at a reasonable price or find legal means to challenge the High Court order of making the installation of speed governors mandatory before March 31, 2016. Reddy said, “We will talk to our Advocate General and also seek the legal opinion of the law ministry.”
