Now taxi, auto unions extend support to two-day bandh
New Delhi: Commuters, particularly school children and office goers, in the national capital may face inconvenience on Wednesday and day after as a number of taxi and autorickshaws unions have decided to support the two-day nationwide strike called by 11 trade unions.
Some bus unions have also extended support to the strike which is likely to affect banking sector as well.
The Delhi government has cancelled leaves of all DTC employees and asked senior officials of the Corporation to be at bus depots from early morning to ensure a smooth running of bus service.
Delhi Transport Minister Ramakant Goswami said around 1,000 RTV (rural transport vehicles) and tourist buses will ply on DTC routes for next two days.
"These buses have been allowed to ply on DTC routes under special service.
The buses would display DTC route numbers and charge DTC fares," he said.
Some autorickshaw and taxi unions said they will join the two-day nationwide strike.
A statement from Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit`s office said all the major trade unions of DTC including DTC employees Congress, Delhi Parivehn Mazdoor Sangh, DTC Worker`s Union and DTC Unity Center have agreed not to participate in the strike.
However, a section of the DTC employees said they will be part of the strike.
