Being badly affected by the non-response of the officials to their grievances the transporters had requested Zulfikar Thaver the president of the Union of Small and Medium Enterprises (UNISAME) for intervention.

Asif Hyatt, vice president UNISAME said there is regular harassment of drivers for extracting bribes and it is making their life miserable.
