 JOWAI: The Jaintia Hills Truck Owners’ Association (JHTOA) has threatened to call an indefinite strike on NH-44 if the government failed to reconsider the revision of vehicular taxes in the State within a week. The Association in a meeting on Saturday had decided to set a one-week deadline for the government to review the four-to-five times hike in the taxes which is not acceptable to the truck and vehicle owners in Jaintia Hills, JHTOA President Balen Thubru said on Sunday. “If the government failed to response within a week, we will organise indefinite strike on NH-44,” he said. Various NGOs including the KSU and AJYWO have opposed the revised taxes.
