Taxis, buses off the roads in Aizawl

Aizawl: With taxies remaining off the roads here for two days and city buses joining the agitation, normal life was completely disrupted on Tuesday here.

The cab drivers, under the banner of Zoram Taxi Drivers Association (ZRDA) refused to run their vehicles since yesterday in protest against state government's proposal that they be off the roads for alternate two days in a week to ease traffic snarls.

The city bus owners association also joined the stir today.

The Mizoram government, in a statement however, instructed all public transport operators to work as per its order from September 17 or face action.
