Khammam: Lorry Owners Welfare Association (LOWA) district president N Satyanarayana alleged that without their knowledge, the officials of Agricultural market had issued a paper notification stating that the owners have stopped lorries services at the market yard from Thursday onwards.
Speaking to media persons, Satyanarayana said, “We are sending lorries to market cotton yard for loading of cotton and for other areas across the district. Even today also, we sent lorries for loading of chillies, granite, rice, cotton and pulses. We did not stop sending lorries as mentioned by the market officials.”
Though the diesel prices were increased from Rs 60 to Rs 70, the Association did not declare a bandh or stop sending lorries for loading goods, he informed.
He further added that extra charges were collected in some areas like Guntur and Ganapavaram when the lorries were exporting certain goods. Some of the farmers by understanding the problems were paying Rs 800 to Rs 1,000. But the Association never declared strike or announced bandh. The lorries would run as usual without any interruption, he assured.
Representatives of LOWA B Purnachander Rao, G Bala Raju, K Satheesh, G Veeranna, B Kanakaiah, Sl Nagul Meera, Y Yesu, B Basha, Sd. Ahmed Pasha and K Venkanna were present along with others.
