Kathmandu, May 2
Transport entrepreneurs say they are ready to hold talks with the government to seek a solution to the problem emerged after the government decided to stop registration and renewal of their organisations in a bid to end their syndicate.
Presenting a 13-point demand at a press meet jointly organised by the Federal Transport Entrepreneurs Organisation (FTEO) and Nepal Democratic Transport Entrepreneurs Organisation (NDTEO), they have urged the government to forge consensus to resolve the issue.
The transport entrepreneurs have also appealed to the Prime Minister, ministers, and chairpersons of various political parties to resolve this matter as soon as possible.
Their other demands include forming a transportation authority and operating it through a registration process, operating public vehicles on the basis of a healthy competition, handing over the rights of the transport sector to provincial government, and correcting the decision made by the government to scrap 20 years old vehicle.
Likewise, they have also demanded to implement insurance policy for an indefinite period, declare road areas as peace zone, and scrap the directive issued by the Department of Transport Management as some points mentioned in the directive contradicts with the acts and laws.
