Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs Association has demanded rollback of the decision to hike petro product price.
Issuing a press release on Tuesday evening, Federation Chairperson Yogendra Nath Karmacharya called for the government to withdraw price hike in view of festive season.
“We have opened prior ticket booking from September 21 to make easier for the passengers to travel during the festival. We could not open the ticket booking if the price hike was not rolled back within 48 hours”, he warned.
It may be noted that a meeting of Department of Transport Management and Federation held on September 16 had decided to open ticket booking from September 21.
