Trucks strike affecting the nation

The strike called by truckers association has reached its seventh day by now. As the central government has been indifferent to the demands of the association, the strike doesn’t seem to end in near future. Truckers have been demanding the reduction of GST on diesel which is not an easy task for the government. The strike has already affected the prices of groceries. Several industries such as textile, ceramic and pharmaceuticals have been severely affected by the strike. Now here is one more bad news. The trucks association might be halting the transport of essential goods such as petrol and milk which would be a nightmare to the nation. But so far, there isn’t any signal from the central government to resolve the issue.
