HIT AND RUN LAW PROTEST BY THE TRUCK UNION CALLED OFF

The strike by truck drivers to display disagreement towards the changes in hit and run laws is called off after discussion with the home ministry. The law changed the 2 years sentence to a 10 years’ sentence including fine for a hit and run case. Ajay Bhalla said the rule isn’t implemented and is on hold. The protest was over the Section 106(2) of Bharatiya Nyaya Samhita or BNS — which is set to replace the colonial-era Indian Penal Code — which had provisions for strict penalty in hit-and-run cases.”The new laws have not been implemented. It will be implemented only after consultation with All India Transport Congress,” confirmed Bal Malkit, the chairman of the AIMTC’s core committee.
