The All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC), the representative body of truckers across the nation, said it will go on an indefinite strike from April 5, demanding a rollback of the fuel price hike announced in the Budget.

The AIMTC will be shut and trucks will go off the road from April 5, AIMTC president G. R. Shanmugappa said here.

The truckers are demanding a rollback of the hike in fuel prices, especially that of diesel.

Diesel prices rose by over Rs 2.5 a litre consequent to a duty hike on fuels.

AIMTC is also demanding reduction in toll rates and withdrawal of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imported truck tyres.
