Bhubaneswar: Even though the private bus owners on Tuesday held discussions with Transport Minister Nrusingha Charan Sahu, they decided to go ahead with their decision for an indefinite State-wide strike from this morning.

Following an executive body meeting of the bus owners’ association, its secretary Debendra Mishra told reporters that they finally decided to keep their vehicles off the roads from Wednesday morning.

Notably, the bus operators demand that the State Government clarify on the route map for City Buses and a rollback of the hike in motor vehicle tax and exemption from paying tax at the tollgates.
