Shillong, Feb 15: The Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) state youth wing has demanded that the government should call the agitating groups and all stakeholders for talks to come up with a solution to end the ongoing commercial taxis strike.

In a statement issued here, the president of KHNAM state youth wing, Thomas Passah said that there should be a  proper system/mechanism to streamline the commercialisation of vehicles throughout the state.

He added that issues such as overcharging of fares above the rate notified by the Government, overcrowding of the commercial vehicles beyond the notified capacity which has put girls/women in an embarrassing situation at times, issues of safety of the passengers in commercial vehicles should be addressed.

He said that the ongoing strike of the commercial vehicles has brought immense difficulties to the general public at large, school students, farmers, etc.

The Meghalaya Joint Action Committee Commercial Vehicles (MJACCV) and the Government should work hand in hand to ensure uninterrupted essential service to the citizen of the State.

The State Government seems to be adamant towards the demands of the MJACCV and the price is being paid by the General public, Passah said.

“There were times when the passengers were forced/helpless to reserve vehicle (situation like this have been witness in Khyndailad/Motphran and other areas,  besides other factors that need to be addressed for the welfare, safety, and convenience of the people,” he said.
