Shillong, Feb 16: The Meghalaya Joint Action Committee of Commercial Vehicles (MJACCV) has decided to suspend their agitation following the government’s move to slash petrol and diesel price to reduce by Rs 5.

It was recently that the government came up with a rebate of Rs. 2 per liter on fuel prices. In addition to the previous rebate of Rs 2 per liter, the Government on Tuesday decided to reduce the fuel prices by Rs 5 which has prompted the association to withdraw the agitation.

Speaking to Hub News, chairman of the JAC, Wandonbok Jyrwa on Tuesday said, “We have decided to withdraw the agitation but we will continue to follow up on other issues such as reducing the burden of taxes on the local taxi drivers”.

Asked about the hike in taxi fare, Jyrwa said that the drivers will stick with the notification issued by the government on January 13, 2020.

He said that it will be Rs 26 for every first kilometer.

Jyrwa informed that commercial taxis will resume their services from Wednesday. The commercial taxis suspended their stir after they were off the road for more than a week.
