Kohima, Jul 2 (UNI) The movement of essential commodities in Nagaland came to a halt as the All Nagaland Goods Movers Union (ANGMU), backed by the All India Motors Transport Congress (AIMTC), called for a strike from 0500 hours today.
Union sources said the stir was called in support of the truckers' demand for abolition of toll tax and service tax, along with rational allocation of duties on Diesel.
No truck will ply on the roads all over the state today, the sources said.
The movement of essentials, including vegetables and other goods, had ceased, with taxis, buses and private vehicles being the only means of transport.
Meanwhile, the ANGMU urged the Panel Committee, set up by the state Cabinet, to gauge the impact of the oil price hike in Nagaland and come up with concessions on fuel, following the footsteps of other states.
