GO put on hold

HYDERABAD: Transport Minister S. Vijayarama Raju on Tuesday said the government had decided to put on hold, for the time being, GO 151 issued on July 14 stipulating that all heavy vehicles in the State be fitted with speed governors. It is understood that the decision was taken at a high-level meeting chaired by Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy. It was allegedly on account of pressure from private transport operators. According to GO, operators were given a month’s time to report compliance.
