New Delhi:

Strongly opposing the hike in petrol and diesel prices, the transporters body AIMTC on Monday threatened to go on an indefinite strike from July 20 to protest against it.

There is resentment among the All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC) members on a number of issues which the government has "failed" to address and its managing committee has decided to launch a nationwide strike, AIMTC said in a statement.

"The major issues are - third party premium hike, abnormal and continual diesel, petrol hike, and toll collection policy," the AIMTC said listing other demands like problems in national permit for tourist vehicles.

The AIMTC threatens to launch a "Nationwide Chakkajam from July 20, 2018" if the government failed to address the issue.
