`No Transport Statutes – several millions of the North draining off to the Centre.

As the transport statutes not formulated in the NPC, several million rupees that should have spent on the development of transport sector of the North, are going to the Central Transport Commission.

Several million rupees collected by issuing rout permits were stagnated in the District Secretariat. One of these Secretariats had sent this money ‘faithfully’ to the Central Transport Commission. Now another 2 District Secretariat shave sent the money to the Centre. There is an amount of around 130 million that is to be sent to Centre.

The vehicle owners of the North had demanded that some action taken to stop this fund returned to centre and spend it to develop the transport sector of the North.
