Demand to roll back petroleum price hike

Kathmandu, September 19

The Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs has demanded the withdrawal of the decision to hike prices of petroleum products.

Issuing a press release on Tuesday evening, the Federation’s President Yogendra Nath Karmacharya called for the government to withdraw the price hike in view of the approaching festive season.

“We have opened prior ticket booking from September 21 to make easier for the passengers to travel during the Dashain festival. We could not open the ticket booking if the price hike was not rolled back within 48 hours,” he warned.

It may be noted that a meeting between the Department of Transport Management and Federation held on September 16 had decided to open ticket booking from September 21.
