The entire transport network, including buses, mini-buses and trucks, of the SRTC observed a total strike across the state and inter-state places in Delhi in protest against the forcible removal of the corporation`s headquarters from TRC in Srinagar.

The employees shouted anti-government slogans and demanded restoration of the SRTC office and bus terminal at TRC.
"Government is selling out assets. They are dislodging our employees and buses from SRTC owned lands and complexes-- it is condemnable", he said.
