Loss of crores due to Adani Group's attitude

After 53 days of the cement freight dispute, bypassing the government’s mediation, the truck owner of Darlaghat and the representatives of Adani Company held talks in Panchkula on Sunday, but the meeting remained inconclusive.

Adani Company officials proposed to give the rate of cement transportation in single digits, due to which the truck operators were uprooted and left the meeting midway. Truck operators are asking for freight in double digits.

Truck owners said that if the cement plant is not started in two days, they will take an annual increase on the old rate. There has been no increase for the last three years. The agitation of the truck owners will continue till an agreement is reached.

Adani officials had given a message to the truck owners of Darlaghat late on Saturday night to hold talks in Panchkula.
