Govt. Invokes ESMA

Faced with the prospects of private buses staying off the road when the school re-open after the Diwali vacations, the government has invoked the Goa Essential Services Maintenance Act prohibiting strike in any form in the transport sector.

The notification issued on Friday evening, prohibits strike in any form for the carriage of passengers or goods by land or water in the State.

The All Goa Bus Owners Association has given a call for a general strike on Monday 22nd November alleging that the government has turned a deaf ear to their genuine demands.

Among the main demands put forth by the bus owners is to stop the harassment meted out to them by the Kadamba Transport Corporation at the bus stands managed by it and also to permit them to continue operating from the old bus stand in front of the Police Station at Margao.
