Chandigarh, April 24

The All-India Motor Transport Congress, that

represents 40 lakh truckers and is an umbrella body of

various truck unions and goods transport companies

across the country, has tied up with the National Aids

Control Organisation (NACO) to check the spread of

AIDS among truck drivers and cleaners.

Charan Singh Lohara, president of the Congress, said

NACO had enough funds and knowledge to hold camps for

truck drivers and cleaners to make them aware with

regard to the preventive steps required to be taken in

this regard. “We have no funds and source material to

educate truck drivers and cleaners with regard to

AIDS. That is why we have tied up with NACO,” he said.

He said NACO officials had been invited to the two-day

conference that would be held under the banner of the

Congress in Kolkata on April 26 and 27 to discuss

various problems being faced by owners of trucks,

truck drivers and cleaners, besides other issues. “We

would chalk out a programme to hold camps at various

places in the country for truck drivers and cleaners,”

said Lohara.

Lohara said the issue of toll, diesel price, highway

robberies and services tax would be discussed in

detail at the conference.

Chairman of the parliamentary committee on transport

Sita Ram Yechuri will be chief guest at the congress.
