Kathmandu, July 8
Public transportation workers have demanded that the government stop private vehicles from ferrying passengers when public transportation has been suspended despite the relaxation of lockdown.
A delegation of the Federation of Nepali National Transport Entrepreneurs met Home Secretary Maheshwar Neupane on Wednesday morning to submit a memorandum in this regard. In the memorandum, the federation says the private vehicles have been found overcharging the public taking advantage of the lockdown.
Receiving the memorandum, secretary Neupane appreciated the ‘sacrifice’ made by the public transporters, adding if the private vehicles were carrying the passengers, that would be unfair.
Meanwhile, the federation also complained that the government did not take initiatives to resume public transportation by maintaining needful safety measures.
