THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Vehicles, including private buses, autorickshaws, taxis, freight vehicles and most of the KSRTC buses, will stay off the road on Tuesday as part of the one-day strike organised by the All India Motor Transport Organisation, demanding the withdrawal of the proposed Motor Vehicle (MV) Amendment Bill. The Bill has been passed by the Lok Sabha, and now Rajya Sabha needs to give it a nod.
The protest will also demand to withdraw hike in insurance premium and restrict price hike of petroleum products. Trade unions except BMS will take part in the strike.

Automobile showrooms, automobile spare parts shops and driving school owners and staff will also participate in the protest. The workers’ union claims the Centre is planning to monopolise the motor vehicle industry.
