Transport entrepreneurs warn protest for a separate ministry


KATHMANDU: Transport entrepreneurs have demanded that a separate Ministry of Transport be established for formulating relevant transport policy and for its management and reforms.

They have warned of launching strong protest movement to the extent of calling a nationwide general strike if their demands were not addressed.

The protest programmes include operating public transport vehicles by sticking black flags from May 23, sticking black flags at the Zonal Transport Offices across the country on May 25, putting a black flag at the Department of Transport Management on May 26 and organizing nationwide general strike beyond May 29.
Speaking in a news conference here on Tuesday, officials of four different transport sector organizations of the country alleged that the government, by taking a decision on May 5 to merge the Ministry of Transport with the Ministry of Physical Planning and Works, has tried to erase the very existence of the transport sector with nearly 1280,000 vehicles.

Similarly, a joint press release issued on the occasion by National Transport Entrepreneurs’ Federation Nepal, the All Nepal Transport Workers’ Association, Nepal Transport Workers Association and Nepal Independent Transport Workers Organization calls on the government to immediately scrap the decision to hike the minimum fine on transport vehicles by five times, saying this decision has condemned the transport entrepreneurs and the workers to a huge financial and impractical burden.

The transport sector organizations have also complained that the traffic police’s atrocities on transport workers has increased and additional financial irregularities have been spawned after the government authorized the Metropolitan Traffic Police Division to provide 15 per cent of the fines to the traffic police on duty.
