ISLAMABAD - The local transporters have vowed to observe complete wheel jam strike today (Monday) but the high ups of Islamabad Capital Territory Administration (ICTA) claim that the issue has almost been resolved. On Sunday, the public transport observed partial strike due to the cancellation of the notification of increase in public transport fares as announced by Chief Commissioner Islamabad, Tariq Mahmood Pirzada after the violent protests by local residents. According to some representatives of transporters union, the vehicles plying between the twin cities including on Route Nos. 1-C, 7, 21, 24, 29 and other routes would observe complete wheel jam strike today (Monday). Deputy Commissioner (DC) Islamabad, Amer Ahmed Ali while talking to this scribe claimed that almost 70 percent vehicles remained on road on Sunday and the issue would be resolved soon regarding the difference in fare lists of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. He further said that the administration was in touch with the Punjab government and a meeting was scheduled to be held between the high ups of ICT administration and Commissioner Rawalpindi today (Monday) in this connection. However, Haji Akhtar Awan, President Muttahida Transporters Alliance (MTA) while talking to TheNation said that the strike was not being observed on the call of transporters union but the owners of the vehicles were reluctant to ply their vehicles as a reaction to the ICTAs cancellation of the notification regarding increase in fares. He further said that the transporters were not ready to ply their vehicles on roads till the increase in fares, as they could not run their business in the existing fares after suspension of the notification. The owners of the vehicles are of the view that if the government wanted to maintain previous fares, then it should bring back the prices of petroleum products at the rate that were three months earlier, he added. He also reiterated that Punjab government could not take the decision of decrease in fares only for Rawalpindi as the existing fare schedule was applicable for the whole province and the decision would effect the province as a whole. He also dispelled the impression that most of the vehicles were on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) saying that all the buses were on diesel fuel while Suzuki vans and some Toyota Hi-ace vans were converted on to CNG. Earlier in the day, DC Islamabad office remained open despite Sunday holiday and DC remained in his office to record the statements of different people in the judicial inquiry ordered by Interior Ministry to probe the incidents of violence that erupted in the city after the increase in public transport fares. DC Islamabad, Amer Ahmed Ali recorded the statements of about 50 persons including police personnel as well as local residents of Bhara Kahu in this regard as Judicial Inquiry Officer. The sources disclosed that the inquiry would be completed in a day or two. The ICT Administration has also completed the survey that was conducted on the orders of DC Islamabad to assess the loss of the property of the local people during the protests and survey report would be forwarded to the Interior Ministry along with findings of inquiry report.
