About 5,000 truck operators from Darlaghat and Barmana have participated in this. This 12 kilometer march from Nauni to the Deputy Commissioner’s office in Bilaspur has started at 11:30 am.

Due to this, there has been a jam on the Chandigarh-Manali National Highway. Traffic from Chandigarh-Manali National Highway has been diverted on Ghagas-Jukhala road. Passengers traveling are facing difficulties.

In view of the foot march, around 100 police personnel have been deployed. The Bilaspur District Truck Operator Sabha Barmana and the unions associated with the Darlaghat Cement Plant have announced a foot march from Nauni to the Deputy Commissioner’s Office, Bilaspur.

Via Chandigarh-Manali National Highway, this march will reach the Deputy Commissioner’s office at around 2 pm.
