Indo-Pak trade halts as truckers continue stir
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
AMRITSAR, Feb 23 (Agencies): With the deadlock between the agitating Attari Union Truck Operators and ICP officials continuing and there seeming no end to their dharna, one kilometer from the Integrated Check Post (ICP), the Indo-Pak trade continued to be on the halt on Wednesday.

Though a couple of trucks might have gone to Pakistan but not even a single truck entered India from the other side.

The Attari Truck Union is protesting against a group and specifically an importer Gursajan Bedi, who also has his own fleet of trucks. The union alleges that the importer is picking goods at lesser rates, causing loss to them.

Meanwhile, Gursajan and some other importers supporting him claimed that Bedi was not a transporter but only an importer and only picks his own imports on the trucks owned by him.

The district administration and officials at the ICP have been mum on the issue so far but a meeting between the members of the union and district administration took place on Wednesday but the trade movement remained on a halt.

Commenting on the matter, deputy commissioner Basat Garg said, “We had two separate meetings with both the groups and have asked them to resolve their issue as per the norms. They have also been asked to maintain law and order as the administration will not tolerate discrepancy in law and order.”

However, there are hopes that from Friday, things will get normalised and trade between two countries will move as per routine.

Talking to agencies, SSP Amritsar (rural) J Elanchezhian said, “We had talks with the members of the union and things have been resolved. We are confident that the trade will be normal from Friday and trucks will not be stopped by the union.”

“However, if some problem occurs, a committee which is already in place will try to reach an amicable solution,” the SSP added.
