The All Odisha Truck Owners’ Association, which had threatened to go on an indefinite strike from midnight on Wednesday, called off the strike following the assurance of the state government to look into its demands favourably.

The decision of the Association came after an assurance from Commerce and Transport minister Subrat Tarai to look into its 7-point charter of demands, general secretary of the Association Rabi Satpathy said in a release here.

A 7-member delegation of the Association had a meeting in this regard with the minister on December 30 last year and again on Tuesday to press its 7-point charter of demands, which includes a fare hike, with a warning that it would resort to indefinite strike in the state from January 15 if its demands were not met.
