AIZAWL, Feb 29 - All commercial vehicles in Mizoram will stay off the roads tomorrow in protest against different decisions made recently by the State Government including hike in vehicle life-time tax and plying of cabs on alternate days.
Announcing this at a press conference here, leaders of Mizoram Commercial Vehicles Joint Action Committee (MCVJAC) said that the hike of the rate of life-time vehicle tax to six per cent of the cost of the vehicle was not implemented by all the States which the Mizoram Government implemented in a haste.
The vehicle owners also accused the government of interested only in mobilising additional resources from the vehicle owners and drivers while being extremely pathetic towards solving the problems faced by commercial vehicle owners. All commercial vehicles, including city buses, taxis, trucks, private buses and maxicabs plying in Mizoram would be off the roads for a day tomorrow, the leaders said.
Meanwhile, taxi owners and drivers today took out a procession in Aizawl in protest against the government�s plan to introduce odd-even scheme from March 1. � PTI
