The founder of Rashtriya Saarthi Seva Mr.Kamal Sharma has released a video in which he has made an attempt to draw the attention of Central and State Governments to the unfortunate condition of truck drivers. He speaks about how private vehicles are being used for commercial purposes with impunity. He also appeared disappointed at the government’s lack of acknowledgment of how truck drivers, even in these tough times, ensured the supply of goods.
He stressed with great urgency how drivers are being harassed on the Rajasthan border by the police. He also mentioned that transporters are refusing to pay salaries to the drivers and upon being requested, they are threatening to fire them from their jobs. He also warned that if the plight of drivers continues to be ignored, the driver community could take some tough steps going forward.
