New Delhi: Coronavirus cases are growing rapidly in India. The government is working hard to stop the spread of coronavirus. And to prevent its infection, the government has also taken important steps like lockdown. Meanwhile, the government is also ensuring the smooth movement of vehicles, who are plying on roads for the supply of essential commodities.

According to the reports, on Wednesday, AIMTC (All India Motor Transport Congress), which is an umbrella body of transporters, has taken up various issues with the government, including providing insurance to truck drivers and co-workers, and is hopeful of a positive response.

Speaking to a news agency PTI, AIMTC president Kultaran Singh Atwal said, “We met the officials and meeting was fruitful. We have put forward our concerns regarding the insurance, suspension of toll and reduction in diesel prices. We are hopeful of a positive announcement regarding the insurance of drivers.”
